More Puke

More on Dan's regurgitated column.

Here's what he wrote on Oct. 3, 1999, after an interview with Pedro Martinez"
He is proud of his fluency in a second language. The joke around the pressbox is that Martinez speaks better English than Clemens. It's not far from the truth.
And every fifth day from April to October, Pedro Martinez takes his tiny frame to the major league mound and humbles hitters with his 97 mile per hour fastball.
Martinez makes the Red Sox a threat in any short series. ... But teams don't want to play the Sox because Martinez can pitch (and win) twice in a five-game series.

Hmmm...praises Pedro, trashes Clemens...praises Schilling, trashes Pedro...praises Beckett, trashes are getting very will read what I write because I am the great Dan Shaughnessy and the Boston Globe continues to publish my dreck....

Cool place you got here. But let's get one thing straight - if you ain't 50 years old and 7 feet tall, you ain't "The Chief", at least not in Boston. :-)

But it's good that you read Shaughnessy so I don't have to. I appreciate that. I really do.

This looks like a case of "what have you done for me lately?" and many many people are guilty of that sin - especially in Boston. If Beckett flops, then Dan will re-use his column one more time. But he won't be alone in that - fans in and out of media will be doing the same thing. Listen to an hour of 'EEI during the Big Show and I'm sure you'll hear it over and over and over again.

Anyway, thanks for the link from DK's place. Interesting stuff here - keep it up.
