As always the attentive readers of WSI, armed with acute baseball acumen have dismantled the incompetent and unprofessional 'journalism' of ESPN. Adding salt to the wound, I have noticed that gradually, over the past 3 years or so, more and more of their articles, features, etc., have been classified as "ESPN INsider" material. Today's three leading stories on their web site were all INsider reports, requiring paid subscription. Thus, not only are the spreading unreliable and even misleading information, they are charging for--hence profiting from--it! This is criminal, or at least should be.

Boycott ESPN!

False advertising. Certainly unjust. If I take someone's money for a service--in this case accurate, researched reporting--and do not provide that service, there is/should be recourse for refunding money. Or, we shall nobody be held accountable in a way that matters?

Good luck with pursuing that!

if the five bucks a month is too much for you, then don't subscribe. according to you, the articles are all crap anyways. so you're not missing a thing!

personally, i'm happy i have the service just so i can read all the local stories about the sox in one place.

Don't pay for the service. Whatever legit gossip they report will make it to the free media shortly thereafter. The unfounded rumors will die and you won't be out any $$ to learn them.
