… is what he might find.

From the blog, Amazin’ Avenue:

If I had to name the most pompous, self-righteous and judgmental mainstream sportswriter around it would probably be Jeff Pearlman.

I know … I know—some people are surely nodding right now.

Damn you.  🙂

  1. To be fair, the very next lines were:

    “At the same time, Pearlman is also one of the most talented sportswriters around. His pieces at Sports Illustrated and his personal blog are daily must-reads, no matter how much I disagree and am annoyed with what he is writing.”

  2. I was about to write what Eric Simon did. You can’t please everyone, and he has your respect. It’s ok, man… it’s ok.

  3. Ha ha… but I can’t help it! I don’t get anything like that, which means I don’t have the popularity that you do. However, I do see that my stuff gets lifted a lot. Fun.

  4. I used to agree completely with your sentiment about players like McGwire, but I’m sort of diverging recently. Baseball is a sport of eras and each period has its own identity. The numbers are so special because they allow us to bridge gaps in time and evaluate all players on the same plane. We can’t do that anymore – that’s for sure. But ultimately, I think we’ll just end up looking at this era as one with its own identity and we’ll think of the numbers as having their own meaning in that context.
