There have been a lot of people who have followed in Rob Neyer’s footsteps over the years, but there still isn’t anyone better at writing stuff that pisses off mainstream baseball writers:
Ryan Howard is pretty good. I mean, he’s no Shin-Soo Choo. But pretty good, for sure.
You probably think I’m just some snot-nosed blogger trying to make a name for myself.
You’re right. After all, it’s patently ridiculous to suggest that a Cleveland Indian who’s unknown to all but the most rabid fantasy owners should even be mentioned in the same breath with a Philadelphia Phillie who has led the National League in RBIs in three of the last four seasons.
If you don’t know where Rob goes with this next, well, you’re just not familiar with his work.
