Today's media boobs:
- Tim Keown is clearly a huge jackass. He listens to Schilling's post game conference after his World Series start (which I stayed up until 1:30 AM to hear replayed—and was definitely worth it) and thinks Schilling is crassly trying to sell his legend.
- Tom Candiotti actually gave St. Louis an edge in pitching when he considered the matchup before the Series started. Why does everyone seem to want the Sox to lose?
- I forget who wrote it, but I actually read an article yesterday with the operating thesis that the Cardinals would take advantage of their favorable pitching matchup of Suppan vs Martinez. We all know Pedro isn't the same pitcher he was 5 years ago, but saying that he compares unfavorably against a guy who's played for 4 teams in 4 years and didn't even make the roster when Boston made it to the playoffs last year is absurd.
You know who doesn't suck? The Sports Guy.
