Big League Stew points out a web site dedicated to the over-hype of Matt Wieters. Here is just one of the many "facts" posted there: "Matt Wieters Is A Six-Tool Player- The Sixth Tool Is AWESOMENESS." We need more about him, don't we? Thank goodness there's no such Luke Scott site. Actually, maybe there is, I just don't want to know about it.
Hazaa author J. Ellet Lambie gets the ultimate get: an informal/impromptu chat with Milt Wilcox. Jealousy rears its ugly head.
Baltimore Sun blogger Peter Schmuck agreed with me about pitching to Luke Scott:
"I'm pretty sure Tigers manager Jim Leyland has told his pitchers that the next fastball strike anybody throws to Scott will result in some particularly gruesome form of corporal punishment."
I was hoping for a series of intentional walks to Scott on Sunday, but instead Jackson showed him who's boss. That works too!
