FIRE JOE MORGAN: About That Weird Page 2 Article


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.

About That Weird Page 2 Article

You know. This one.

Been getting a lot of e-mails about it over the past couple of days. In fact, if you e-mailed us once to tell us to give it the ol' FJM treatment, and then again, like an hour later, when you realized that it's (we think) a piece of satire, you're not alone.

I'm not sure exactly what there is to say about it. But to answer some questions we've gotten:

No, we didn't write it.
No, we don't know who did.
Yes, we think it's meant to be a satirical anti-Moneyball piece, and therefore, ostensibly, a pro-Moneyball piece. But it's pretty hard to tell.

I like that if you Google "Art Garfamudis," one of the first things that comes up is an anagram search for "Art Garfamudis." Meaning, people are trying to find an anagram-clue in the pen name. (Of course! Radiums A. Graft.)

Well, I hope this has been as disappointing for all of you as it was for me. We'll try to get to that beautiful Plaschke/Pierre article but I'm not making any promises.

Okay, guys -- people are now sending me the other articles that "Art" has written to prove that it was satire.

I know, I saw them before, I get it, let's move on.

Ugh, Page 2. See the mess you've caused?!
Huh. I guess it's Jim Baker from BP.

Well, there you go.
