Rosenthal does a classy thing and actually apologizes for making the mistake on our team's centerfielder. He still doesn't think highly of the Sox, but what else is new. He does offer some praise for Crede though.

I'm confused...does that mean the wind is blowing north, or north-northwest today?

I emailed him about the mistake, and he actually replied back to me. He basically said the exact same thing he does in this article.

:gulp:

Just another lazy writer mailing it in, what's new?

This is his job. HE SHOULD KNOW BETTER. I don't care if he apoligizes or not, he still doesn't give us any credit. He should have paid more attention to the Sox before he made the careless mistake.

I read the comments. Why should he pay more attention to the Sox? He's got 30 teams to cover. Fast starts are nice, but I'm sure that he's seen many of them throughout his career that haven't lasted a season. What if it turns out that we've mainly been playing the weak teams (not the ones that were predicted to be weak, but the ones that end up being weak)? What if a couple of our starting pitchers go down with injuries? A lot can happen. His comments about our anemic OBP -- particularly the low number of walks -- should be a concern to all of us. Oh, and looking at records, we may very well have been playing weak teams.

Being beaten 4 out of 5, or getting swept by a team will often contribute to a team having a weak record. Or to put it another way, Minnesota is 9-2 in games not against the White Sox. Cleveland is playing basically .500 (6-7) in games not against the White Sox. Same with Detroit (7-8 against other teams). We've put dings on the records of everyone we've played thus far, which makes it a bit hard to judge early. It's possible that all these teams will end up being doormats, but I find it somewhat unlikely.

Uribe:

He made a mistake because he's human. Human's have this nasty habit of screwing up from time to time. Haven't you ever screwed up?

i agree we all make mistakes, and this is a minor mistake compared with the numerous mistakes ESPN analysts make every day. Classy thing to do is actually acknowledge it and learn from it, which makes you a better person in the process.

You know what is scary, Kenny...is that Dye, Rowand, Uribe, and AJ have looked lost at the plate for the majority of the season. What happens when they start hitting?:o:

My favorite item from his column was this...


The Cubs (http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/team/71602)' trade for shortstop Nomar Garciaparra (http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/player/84953) could prove a winner even if Garciaparra never makes a significant impact; outfielder Matt Murton, the other player the Cubs (http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/team/71602) acquired from the Red Sox (http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/team/71588) in the four-way deal, reminds one scout of Paul Molitor. Murton batted .492 with nine extra-base hits in his first 61 at-bats at Class AA ...


Really?? If Nomar never makes ANY impact...it's a good trade?!?
