What editor let obvious oversights and incorrect facts pass by? No mention of Ben Zobrist (I'd say he stuck out all season), Jeff Niemann (over .500, which, okay this is a stupid way of judging a starter, but he is over .500), and somehow tabbed Matt Garza and James Shields as going a combined 16-19 last season. Again, not the best or third best or 95th best way to evaluate a starting pitcher, but Shields and Garza most definitely did not go 16-19 last season.
I don't even know what this means and I wouldn't like it if I did:
Rays manager Joe Maddon took a chance by bringing in seven position players and two pitchers he thought could get it done. Instead, they have struggled on routine plays.
Erik brought this to my attention and I cannot thank him enough. I normally avoid highlighting awful pieces but this is proof positive that some people spend too much time on their catchphrases and not enough time understanding the sport they're trying -- key word here -- to cover. I wonder what Young did to piss his editor off enough to run this article.
