Why can the Pawtucket Times have their facts together yet AP Sports puts out garbage? This from the many details in today's Pawtucket piece:
  • "Let Papelbon do for Boston what Rivera has done for the Yankees. Can the kid stay healthy for the next 12 years? Who knows?
  • "Baseball analyst Peter Gammons predicted in 1997 that Rivera's elbow wouldn't hold up for more than a couple of seasons. If Gammons can be so wrong, then none of us can feel certain that Boston made either the right or wrong move with Papelbon.
We'll have to let time be the test of this move." Article entitled, "Schilling Laid Groundwork for this Move," 3/22/07, by Terry Nau, Pawtucket Times Sports Editor.
  • P.S. Mariano Rivera had Tommy John surgery in 1992, thereby reducing some injury concerns for ensuing years.

  • Thanks again for your story. I'd just noted a recent butchering of reality by one of the AP guys on the general subject you wrote about. Which of course was picked up all around the world. It was miraculous to see your article, and I hope you write many more.

  • Glad to hear you appreciate the great Mo. Unfortunately, the media is swarming with people who seek to minimize and mischaracterize him. It's the main reason I started this blog.
