Bonds strikes out with his attitude

Bob Klapisch doesn’t come off as a nice guy in this piece. From the tone of the article it’s readily apparent that he doesn’t like Barry Bonds. He’s not exactly alone in this regard. Many people don’t like Baryy Bonds. What differentiates him from other people is that he’s willing to impugn Barry Bonds with baseless gossip. His phantasmagorical gossip will surely be picked up by other petty writers who will fail to identify the source. But Klapisch won’t care. People who use McCarthy-esque tactics rarely do.

Tom,

I don't know whether the mistake was a typo or simply habit (Dave McCarty is on my sim team). In either case, thanks for pointing out the error. :0

Actually, I think technically Klapisch's column is about New York baseball, but let's face it, the Mets have not been worth writing about at all. (That includes you, Voros. There is reasoning to the "send someone down to the minors" beyond just "it's worked before".) I don't know if Klapisch is the only local-oriented columnist. I rarely read his stuff, but Phil Rogers does seem to write about Chicago a lot, and a fair amount of Sean McAdam's stuff is Red Sox-related. (Although, let's face it, the Sox are sort of the Bill Clinton of MLB, an unending supply of good material. I'll let you make your own decision on who the Dan Quayle of MLB is.)
