Dave Fricking Roberts

Look, nobody was happier when Roberts stole that base than yours truly, but how long can we possibly spend discussing this stolen base tonight?

And could Joe Morgan possibly know less about what he is talking about? He sounds like a paranoid nut talking about "those people" who say this and that and the other.

Well, Harold Reynolds and John Kruk probably prove that he technically could know less about what he is talking about.

Steals only become a net positive at a 70% success rate. That's just statistics. When you break it down to a single situation, you can't learn ANYTHING from it. It's just luck.

And the Yankees defense has been superb tonight. Just so you know.


  • The irony of Joe Morgan's existence is inescapable. For younger people than I who didn't see him play, I tell them as dumb as he is as a broadcaster, that's how smart he was as a ballplayer. The two would seem to mutually exclusive but something happens to these guy when they get behind a microphone.
