FIRE JOE MORGAN: "...Thank You?"


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.

"...Thank You?"

I imagine that was Dodger catcher Russell Martin's response to manager Grady Little, after hearing this "compliment" --

"He," Dodgers manager Grady Little says of his catcher, in the loftiest of baseball terms, "is a dirtbag."

And then, after showing a sly smile, Little explains in his gravelly voice: "He's a baseball player."

What do you think of baseball player Russell Martin? He's a baseball player.

I submit this for the approval of the Dodger fans who wrote in to defend Grady a week ago.

Also, the Red Sox of the early 00s called themselves "Dirt Dogs." That I kind of understand. But isn't calling your guy a straight "dirtbag" just kind of insulting?

Thanks to reader Karthik for the tip.

Many of you have pointed out that the Long Beach (Cal State, maybe?) college team is called the Dirtbags, or calls themselves the dirtbags, etc. So I guess that part isn't that weird.
