Default Baseball Season Underway...

Just a quick opinion question on something that's always interested me...News agencies, ESPN especially, whenever they report injuries, even if it's only a week or two that the player will be out, tend to make things sound grim for the team that player is signed to.

My question for you is this: do you think that's all a bunch of yellow journalistic hooey?? If there's 160+ games in a year and A-Rod (hypothetically) misses 5 of the first 10...is it really that friggin' bad??

See, in a stretch of a few games, players can step in and play over their heads or not and still the team can notch some wins. Obviously you'd like a player the quality of A-Rod to play most of the 160+ games, or as many as you can, but at this stage and in spring training, is it going overboard when we hear Stuart Scott say things like, "The Yankees were dealt a serious blow when they had to put Kevin Brown on the DL...again."

My instinct is to call that nothing but hogwash, but if someone can explain to me why exactly it would be considered to be a major blow at this point in the season when anyone is capable of going on a 6-12 game hitting spree??

Late.

If you or someone you know has been caused grief by an "Internet Bully" then you and/or that person is nothing but a little punk ass bitch, and the world would be a better, more manly place if you'd just jump off a fucking bridge already.

No its not, but ESPN is on par with the National Enquirer. No real focus on Sports, but a lot on Entertainment.
