Dibs & Kevin take the opportunity
to minimize Mariano Rivera by allowing an inaccurate statement to go uncorrected.
I've cited examples
of their apparent sensitivity to the subject of Rivera before
. Part of it may be that Dibs is a
close friend of a national league reliever on the west coast,
& wants that guy (Hoffman) to get the most recognition.
Today's example: A caller looking at
the 1931 Yankee team, noting 7 or more of them went to the
HOF. The caller says, "YOU CAN'T PUT RELIEVERS IN BECAUSE
THEY HAVEN'T DONE IT. SO YOU CAN'T EVEN PUT IN MARIANO
RIVERA." Comment from either Dibs or Kevin:
Dibs and Kevin know that Rollie Fingers & Dennis
Eckersley are in the HOF. But they
allowed the erroneous statement by the caller to go uncorrected.
