...after reading the intro to this game recap.
There are really only two possibilities here:
- ESPN is so arrogant that they assume Marlins fans are more interested in seeing an enemy player homer than watching their own team cap off an exciting and improbably ninth-inning comeback with a walkoff shot, or
- Marlins fans are so pathetic that this assumption is actually true. Hooray for round numbers!
Either way, I give this a giant thumbs-down. The obsession with round numbers forced America to sit through two terrible years from The Player Formerly Known As Craig Biggio, and now the cameras are fixed nightly on Griffey, whose career as a better-than-replacement-level player may be over.
Wow, I sound like Joe Sheehan. Rant over!
