Breaking News: Media Beats Off Over Self Importance; Escobar Continues to Kick Ass, Anyway
There is not much worse in the world than when the media starts writhing around in a masturbatory tiff about their self-importance. And that’s what this whole Yunel Escobar not-talking-to-the-media enough non-story is. And yet Bowman is on it. Bradley is on it.
Here’s a thought: shut up, nobody cares!
We cared when Escobar had a rough week in the field making a number of costly mistakes a few weeks ago. But he’s over that shit, coming off winning NL player of the week for wielding some hefty lumber and picking up two (count’em two!) Web Gems tonight. I haven’t noticed anybody booing Escobar for not learning English so the AJC can chat him up. Funny, though, that I haven’t heard anything about any of the media members learning a little Espanol to speak to Escobar (and the myriad other Hispanic players in beisbol today) either.
Yunel Escobar is a fabulous defensive shortstop and has been one of our most productive hitter this year. And yet all the media seems to care about is themselves. Move on, folks.
