Take just a minute and browse the sports page of your local paper. How many stupid thoughts did you read? A safe bet: more than should be acceptable. These absurdities come from everywhere: columnists needing to fill space and/or stir up a fan base, executives spewing the company line, or GMs consummating a terrible trade or signing a free agent to a ludicrous contract.

The Baseball Critic takes a look at media fodder and breaks it down in rational terms. Join me, please, on the Island of Reason and Logic.

    Columnists, like you say, have to fill tons of column inches, and on days when nothing new is happening. And they play to the least sophisticated in their audience so yes, the content is lousy.

    I see so much over-the-top Yankee “reporting” in NY that it is a joke but you know what? That’s what sells these papers or they wouldn’t do it. I ain’t a charity. Still, you look for guys like Klapisch or Madden and with the internet, you can get Olney and folks from around the country so there’s no excuse anymore.

    And you’d think the internet content would raise the level of these local jokers but it doesn’t. –fog

    this country is so screwed up ,,, baseball a priority? top story in the news? when people cant get medical coverage ,,, baseball players getting 20 million a year but this country cant afford to give its own citizens fair medical insurance ? THIS COUNTRY IS A FUCKING JOKE ! there is not a baseball player on the planet worth more then 25,000 dollars a year especially that they only play for a few months,,, but paying these jock off clowns millions of dollars is a slap in the face ! it is no wonder the USA is down the toilet economic wise ,,, any asshole who would pay 50 bucks for a hot dog and 30 bucks for a soda and 20 bucks for a pretzel is an obvious idiot ! baseball / sports in general seems to be some kind of fascination and it is sickening ! and what about these drunken nitwits sitting in the bars acting like fools ,, the women who cant control their vagina ,,,, SPORTS ARE DEFINITELY NOT A SPORT , NOTHING BUT A BUSINESS AND OVER GROWN CHILDREN PLAYING WITH BALLS !
