FIRE JOE MORGAN: P.S.

FIRE JOE MORGAN

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.

P.S.

Just in case anyone is wondering whether we are being too harsh on people who praise poor little gritty determined banged-up heart-of-a-champion little-things-doer David ScrapHeart Eckstein, O.B.E., here is some decidedly ungritty data for them to gnaw on:

2006:

EQA: .251 (21st among all SS)
WARP1: 2.5
VORP: 9.2

9.2 VORP. 9.2.

That is 217th in MLB.

He was tied with Tony Graffanino and his own teammate John Rodriguez, who is predominantly a pinch hitter.

Kaz Matsui is only 5'10", and he's terrible, and his VORP was over 12.

Note, too, that in both of the articles linked in the posts sub, the work "overlooked" is used many times. In what possible freaking way is this guy overlooked? He is the most-looked player ever, in terms of how much his talent deserves to be "looked".
