For Christs sake Zeus, lay off the guy...
He's bantering about baseball, hating on the Yankees...its not rocket science and doesn't need to be treated so.
Why even waste your time breaking down stats of TWO of the players on the team (the two most productive this season too I might add)
Because he wrote:
"Every player on that team is an overpaid, underperforming diva."
Dollar for Dollar, he has a point...a good point.
Which team has had a higher salary than the Yanks and performed worse...(This is a team sport too, breaking down 2 players is BS)
The TEAMS Ws and Ls are all that matters.
Those two were not highlighted (probably bad quoting on my part) as a rebuttal to the "Dollar for Dollar" comment, but, rather, as a rebuttal to the "overpaid, underperforming" comment.
The worst team in the history of sports was a very bold statement and probably inaccurate, but it doesn't need to be taken completely literal either.
Yes it does.
Otherwise I could write something like:
"The 2006 Indianapolis Colts were the greatest team in the history of sports on the Planet Earth, when based upon money spent per season-ticket-holder in contrast with the salary cap and 2004 Presidential Election popular vote totals."
The onus of responsibility is on the poster making the statement.
If you're going to post something ludicrous with no backing in fact, then I'm going to jump on it.
Check out my title.
It's part of my responsibility to PPO.
