It wasn’t too long ago that we posted some off the field comments made by Luke Scott regarding is displeasure with DH’ing.
Want to turn a non-story into a big deal? Let anyone and their mother write for a website and broadcast their opinions publicly. Ok, don’t mind if I do.
Couple of reactions from the guys at ESH:
Jjaks – The Post’s sports section is a joke. They have very little reporting on any facts of any kind and rest solely on opinion pieces by their writers, which they have a reputation of taking from another section of the paper and getting them to write sports regardless of their knowledge (see Tony Kornhieser). They also employ sports people who are not in touch with the teams in the area in which they cover (see their 1 capitals beat writer who does not go on ANY road trips with the team and therefore relies on other peoples local media for all his information as well as Mike Wilbon living in Arizona while covering the Redskins and Wizards and even more so Sally Jenkins doing all her reporting and editorials on Washington sports from her looooong time home in New York)
Kevin – Luke has a permit. Gilbert didn’t. There’s your number one difference right there. I say let them bring guns on the field. Who cares? You want viewership? Get your center fielder doing ROTC drills between hitters or have your third basemen shoot skeet for extra runs during the seventh inning stretch.
Shane – Can you imagine if John Rocker carried a gun?
And that’s where I’ll leave this. John Rocker. Gun. Racism. Happy Monday.
Tip of the cap to Dempsey’s Army for spreading the word. He’s got more to say on the topic.
