FIRE JOE MORGAN: Readers Do Our Work For Us, Vol. XLIII

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.

Readers Do Our Work For Us, Vol. XLIII

Karl and the fine people over at Athletics Nation file this report:

A bunch of us at Athletics Nation heard this gem tonight from A's broadcaster Glen Kuiper (yes, the brother of Duane with the career 82 OPS+ and .325 OBA). He was defending Joe Blanton's season last year because, wait for it, HE WON 16 GAMES. Then he went on to say, "If I had a choice of a guy who wins 5-4 over the guy who loses 2-1, I'll take the 5-4 guy any day".

No mention of the hypothetical guy who wins 2-1. Or wins 11-8. Or gives up 8 runs in three innings but his team rallies and he gets a ND and next time out wins 7-5.

I have to go to a meeting now. In Rome, people. Rome.
