BASEBALL: Looking for Stupid

With the baseball writers inexplicably having gotten all the major awards right, one has to dig deeper for examples of blazing stupidity in end-of-season awards, but Jonah Keri finds one in Topps naming their all-rookie catcher. Matt Wieters? Nope. Omir Santos.

I suppose there's no downside in Omar calling up the Orioles to see about a deal, but even the Angelosi aren't that stupid.

I don't know whether AL Gold Glove for SS = major award, but giving that to Cindershoes I. McFistpump has to rank as a mistake.

Obama is at -15 on the Rasmussen approval index. Another thing to be hopeful for.

There was the guy who gave Miguel Cabrera a first place MVP vote for going on an all-night drinking binge with a playoff spot on the line.

Not sure where to post this, but have to ask Crank.
Did you see where Perino also thinks 9/11 is nothing?
First W, then Krauthammer, now Perino.

It's nice to see your 9/11 rants being exposed as nothing but a fetish.

There's a fetish here Berto, but it's not Cranks. Every time you push this 9/11 is not a big deal theory, you sound crazier and crazier.

Agreed, dch. fictional data, that is a classic. Given the impact of proposed legislation I wonder if the Chinese justice system is not the model? GW profiteers should get the chair.
Poor Tiger, the sports world is rarely forgiving of a man in his circumstances. Brett Myers is readily forgiven, Woods seems likely to be a punchline for the ages.

The greatest golfer in the world was beaten up by his wife using .......... a golf club!!!

LargeBill, that would indeed make sense of this.

You guys do know Berto's just doing shtick, right? It's not intended to be taken seriously as argument.
