    Somebody at the 4-letter thinks the Red Sox will now pull off the greatest comeback in the history of baseball, coming back from a 4 games to 3 deficit. Well, Bristol is in the heart of Red Sox Nation. (Thanks Brett). We have now watched the 8th and 9th innings […]

    [SCOOP JACKSON] Scoop Jackson Would Like To ‘Clarify’ His Idiocy

    Earlier this week we took exception to some comments made about BJ Upton by Scoop Jackson of ESPN.com. Among the most egregious statements made by Mr. Jackson was the suggestion that inner-city kids will relate better to Upton because he is occasionally “lazy”. At some point yesterday, a “clarification” was […]

    Before we give this ESPN column the toilet paper treatment, we should point out that the premise is spot-on. BJ Upton is the type of player that could bring young African-Americans back to baseball. But like many of Scoop Jackson’s columns, the execution was perfectly flawed. As one of the […]
