That job has a quiet dignity. Unlike being the Wiz. Nobody beats him.
Since when does the media correct inaccuracies, or have responsibility to correct inaccuracies, in something that was said by a misinformed person? R.A. Dickey misrepresented the origin of his bat's name...not the Times. The Times is clea on this; no correction needed; unless they just felt like it.
"...one of his bats"ONE?! How many freakin' bats does a pitcher need?And a pitcher naming his bats seems just silly, but then...naming it after a character's sword from a fantasy novel makes senseTriple Fake Wonder Boy
You know they issued the correction because they received a zillion e-mails and texts from every geek in New York. Well, maybe not a zillion as there can't be that many Tolkien-heads that read the sports section. I imagine that the editors couldn't read half of the messages because they were written in Elvish.DF Viggo
I am soooo thankful someone else noted that horrible mistake!! How could anyone have ever NOT known that...I about crapped my tunic when I saw that...DF Level 5 Wizard.
Chronic Wat?! Chronic-culls of Narn-neeya!
In the spirit of pointless corrections..............11:42----- Note that media is the plural of medium, thus your question should be "Since when do the media"........
Orcrist and Sting were both...inferior.Double Fake Excalibur
That's why I was never the long ball hitter. I never took the time to name my bat. My balls, yes, but not my bat. My mistake.My Other Brother Darryl
Since when did we start letting knuckleballers name their bats?
So a former Ranger great pulled one over on "The Newspaper of Record?" Well played, R. A., well played.
A lot of people try to correct me for sleeping with so many people of my same gender.I say to all of you--"take a walk on the wild side!"Rage
