Baseball Over Here

Great Moments in self-importanceThere's a lotta things about me you don't know anything about, Dottie. Things you wouldn't understand. Things you couldn't understand. Things you shouldn't understand. You don't wanna get mixed up with a guy like me. I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel. So long, Dott:
This will never be over. Ever. And the truth is, baseball couldn't handle the truth. Neither could the average baseball fan. You don't want to know how many players were on the juice before those 2003 tests made a dent in things. You don't. Trust me.
I heard that, one time, Greg Doyel couldn't make up his mind about something, so he beat the crap out of himself. True story.
Thing about it is that I don't really disagree with anything he says in the piece. But man, the way he says it . . .

Go ahead and scream your head off, Doyel. We’re miles from where anyone can hear you.

This guy needs to meet up with Geoff Baker and go bowling or something.

If the guy was half the thinker he claims to be he would know that no one thought the world was flat when Columbus sailed to America.
Do I sound like Olbermann?

I stopped reading at his erroneous Columbus claims. I wish we would do a better job of teaching history in this country.

The world is flat?? It’s as preposterous a concept as the Alamo having a basement…

The shame is that the blowhard stuff makes it harder to appreciate a really important point, which hasn’t been made often enough: releasing the entire list will NOT bring closure. If it would, I’d still say that we shouldn’t do so, for all of the reasons that Craig keeps trying to get people to remember! But, can you imagine trampling the players’ rights and breaking the law, and then NOT putting and end to this story?
He may say it like a jerk, but the man has a point!

I feel the same way about Geoff Baker at the Seattle Times (to loop clear back to your previous excellent posts and comments from Baker’s blog about the blogger implicating Raul, blah, blah, blah hoopla)... the man makes a number of excellent points that should be out there being discussed, but it’s so hard to get to them underneath the pile of self-importance. And all it would take is a halfway decent editor saying “Baker/Doyel, you sound like a tool right here. How about we say the same thing, just without the layer of crap?”

No delete key, instead there is an off switch.
