MLB.com takes different approach to covering team
Okay, okay, if I put this in a post, will everyone stop trying to hijack threads and emailing us?
The money quote:
“I’m astonished to tell you the truth when I look up and I see Vidro’s average is what it is, because I feel like every time he goes up there I’m very confident that he’s going to give us a good at-bat,” Riggleman said. “And for the at-bats that he has, he’s knocked in quite a few runs … he’s been fairly effective in the way we want to use him.
Generally speaking, I try not to post links to MLB.com inanity or Kelley’s occasional forays into baseball commentary (or inaccuracies in beat writer stories) — we’ve really gotten away from that since Finnigan took his leave. MLB.com is to baseball coverage what the game broadcasts are to the team — it’s a PR arm to promote the product. I just accept it at that. But for whatever reason, everyone loves this story, soo… have at it.
