BASEBALL: Nasty Buckley

Steve Buckley of the Boston Herald wrote a vicious column attacking Nomar for not hustling. What's that? No, not for that. For not working hard and not being mentally prepared to play, then. What? Not that either. How about for not being willing to play hurt? Nope. For not taking it seriously when the Sox lose? Quite the contrary. Basically, Buckley ripped Nomar for not being more appreciative of the acid-tongued Boston media and the atmosphere they labor to build among the fans. Anyway, Bill Simmons has the goods on Buckley in his latest newsletter, excerpted on the Projo boards, and some of the regular Projo posters have some interesting comments as well, speculating among other things about whether the Sox owners may be scheming to dump Manny Ramirez' salary (link requires registration). Boston Sports Media Watch also does a number on Buckley.
