Jimmy Collins Was Truly Chump Change, points out the Aaron Gleeman, Brandon McCarthy, C.J. Nitkowski, Michael Young 2,000 hits ain’t 3,000 to-do.
Still, that simple numbers-based post brought a cascade of tweets from Brandon McCarthy, a one-time teammate of Young’s. Here they are, all put together for your reading convenience:
I read A LOT of nonsense on a daily basis, but this tops the charts today.
“Young is the 234th player to reach 2,000 hits, which isn’t exactly exclusive company” That’s like what, 1 out of every 3 people on earth?
“Even reaching 2,000 hits by age 34 isn’t that rare” You’re right guy, we should probably stone him in a public square for failing us all.
Every single thing that happens, doesn’t have to be contextualized historically. Some things are nice moments. Leave em alone.
Our friend C.J. Nitkowski weighed in, too:
@B__McCarthy 234th player out of 17K to ever play. You know the drill, these guys try to see who can say the dumbest thing 4 most attention.
I don’t know. There’s some of that, I guess. But I’ve seen a lot of dumb things on the Web, and Gleeman’s post about Michael Young wouldn’t make the Top 10,000 List.
