Yeah, I had just a few vague comments about it yesterday on my timeline. I was curious who it was too and would have put money on it being Telander. I just laughed when I saw it was that idiot.
Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.

Almost sad that doofus took down the bit about being smarter about baseball strategy than Joe Maddon or whatever it was.

He writes for BP Wrigleyville.

Incidentally, I just read a piece by Sharma about him leaving there.

"Not because he's done anything short of a marvelous job, but because some FO turnover is good"

Wow, this dude is just talking out of his ass. What does this even mean? Yes, so-and-so has done a marvelous job, but maybe we should roll the dice with some new blood? What!? It just makes no sense. If you said, something like, "Theo's only been to the playoffs once, has lost more games than he has won here, and he just got lucky with having a bunch of high draft picks," then I could say, "I think you are a fool, but at least your opinion has validity." This? This is just utter nonsense.
