Pop Goes the Weasel
Peter Gammons is supposedly a baseball genius. I tend to be a skeptic by nature. Baseball Tonight on ESPN could have been a half hour show, but his endless stuttering created a time crunch, so they went to a full hour. This season ESPN tried using him as an in-game analyst...once again st-st-stuttering and the poor man wasn't allotted enough time to get his point across. Now I know I shouldn't make fun of Gammons because of the whole brain aneurysm thing...but I thought he was a doof before that. Reasons why Gammons is a dip-wad: 1. He called the Yankees signing of Octavio Dotel the best offseason free agent lockup (11.37 ERA, 2.84 WHIP, only 6.1 IP) . 2. He predicted Bobby Crosby to be the '06 AL MVP (.229 avg, .636 OPS, always hurt). 3. He slob-knobs the BoSox...disgusting.
P.S. Gammons does have a saving grace...his decent taste in music. He loves to rock out with his c**k out!
