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 sense

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.

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"........

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.

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.
