Default Another ESPN Snub

https://www.nbcsports.com/chicago/wh...-hear-about-it


Espn "researcher" forgot to add Big Hurt to players who finished in the top 4 of MVP voting three or more times during their career.


Someone higher up there must really get off on these omissions. Seems purposeful.

Purposeful? That's doubtful. Chalk it up to incompetence.

Why isn't Barry Bonds listed either? He won 7 MVP awards.

Purposeful? Maybe...maybe not because they know it gets a rise out of Sox fans. What is interesting though is that it REPEATEDLY seems to happen involving the White Sox.

Except Frank wasnít the only snub. How could the writer forget someone as obvious as Barry Bonds? Or Albert Pujols? Or Miguel Cabrera? Or...

Those are guys are indeed on the list. They are on a separate tweet. Frank is the ONLY omission.

I saw an article about it and looked the guy up. The dip**** is ESPN's HEAD researcher. Seriously?

Why does anyone care what ESPN thinks, says or does?

I guess I am very lucky to rarely if ever watch ESPN.

Because it's about getting facts straight.

This is somewhat ironic in that virtually all the East Coast baseball fans I know would recognize that Frank was missing from the list, or at least wondering why he wasnít on it. I donít know if it is intentional, but it certainly is incompetent.

Exactly. They are supposed to be a professional broadcast organization. Facts matter folks.
