Baseball Kills

Deplorable. Who's the victim here? Everyone deserves a more thorough treatment than this thumb sucker provides. I'd have to guess that a 13-year-old murderer has significant problems over and above being heckled on a Little League diamond, being that this sort of thing goes on a lot without someone being brutally murdered, but as usual Bill Plaschke fails to do anything but what he does best, which is superficial tripe with a tut-tutting cherry on top. Tell me about these boys. Tell me what was different about this situation that would justify ("as Plaschke does -- Had nothing been learned?") this result, when this is not the result in every other Little League game played since time began. In other words, as usual, I've learned nothing, except that killing might not be so bad as long as you've been picked on beforehand. Thanks, Bill.

UPDATE: In fact, it is typically Plaschkean that he showed more outrage regarding Milton Bradley throwing a plastic bottle at nobody than he did toward the actual perpetrator in this case.


  • Hey, look at the bright side -- at least he managed avoid blaming Frank McCourt and/or Paul DePodesta for the kid's death.
