If [Graig] Nettles ran the 100-yard dash against Lou Piniella, nobody would win
I haven't been around much lately, but is "The Id of SugarBear Blanks" the new troll? Seems like it.
There's room for both types of books, a fact that continues to elude the smarties. "Analysis" is one way of approaching baseball, but it's merely a niche -- one that's become something of a bore.
[Bob Horner] is signed to a big contract and is expected to win the Triple Crown before the contract expires
What insight is lost? Where's the harm?

Man, it was fun to be a 12-year-old Braves fan in the spring of 1984. Murphy was the reigning MVP, Bob Horner was going to win the triple crown, Brad Komminsk was going to be Rookie of the Year, and you just knew that Craig McMurtry was on the verge of breaking out. Maybe he'd keep Pascual Perez from winning the Cy Young!
In general I don't think there is any harm. I used to think that comments without much thought that appealed to uninformed romanticism were harmful as they reinforced non critical thinking... but I now think that some people will always be non-critical thinkers, and they need an outlet that they can appreciate. Its not for me from an analysis POV, but the colorful language can be beautiful .
