Where Bad Sports Journalism Came To Die

FJM has gone dark for the foreseeable future. Sorry folks. We may post once in a while, but it's pretty much over. You can still e-mail dak, Ken Tremendous, Junior, Matthew Murbles, or Coach.

Maybe Someday, Kirk Gibson Will Finally Show Up in the Playoffs

Does the name Mike Celizic mean anything to you guys? He's a typist for, who sometimes types about sports. I can't remember if we've ever written anything about him before...check the archives. There might be one or two musings on his talents. I honestly can't remember. Anyway, he just wrote an article for called -- I kid you not --

Glavine Finally Erases His Playoff Demons.

As in: Tom Glavine.

As in, the guy who clinched the 1995 World Series with this line:

8 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 8 Ks.

And the guy who won Game Two of that same WS with this line:

6 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 3Ks.

The guy with a 2.47 World Series ERA. The guy who has given up (pay attention to this) 33 hits in 58.1 WS innings.

That guy. That guy finally erased his playoff demons with a Game Two Division Series win over the Dodgers.

I know he's had some crappy outings in the playoffs. I know that he's like 13-15 lifetime in the postseason. But when you play in the postseason every year for 32 consecutive seasons, you'll have some crappy outings. Whitey Ford was 10-8 in the postseason, and had an ERA over 8.00 in his final World Series. Think he had any playoff demons?
