The Renowned Boston Globe Sports Section

You know Hadley has been whining for years that the Globe sports section continues to go down the tubes with a complete and utter disregard for facts. Check this passage from Boston Sports Media Watch out from yesterday, I can't imagine producing worse journalism if constantly surrounded by women and wine:


I've gotten a number of emails this morning regarding a paragraph in Nick Cafardo's column this morning on David Murphy.

The passage in question is this one:

"The '03 draft produced Rocco Baldelli, Mark Teixeira, Jose Reyes, Joe Mauer, Miguel Cabrera, Justin Morneau, Johan Santana, Travis Haffner, Hanley Ramirez, Rich Harden, Lastings Milledge, Brandon Wood, Nick Markakis, Chad Cordero, and Rickey Weeks.

When one thinks of it in that context, Murphy hasn't measured up, but the journey isn't over."

So where do we begin here?
It's Travis Hafner, not Haffner. In addition, he was drafted in 1996, not 2003.

Johan Santana was orginally signed by as an amateur free agent in 1995. In 2003, he was in his fourth year with the Twins.

Rocco Baldelli was drafted in 2000.

Mark Teixeira was drafted in 2001.

Jose Reyes was signed as an amateur free agent in 1999.

Joe Mauer was drafted in 2001.

Miguel Cabrera was signed as an amateur free agent in 1999.

Justin Morneau was drafted in 1999.

Hanley Ramirez was signed as an amateur free agent in 2000.

Rich Harden was drafted in 2000.

Minor quibble, (compared with the rest): It's Rickie Weeks, not Rickey.

The only players in Nick's list actually drafted in 2003 are Wood, Cordero, Weeks, Milledge and Markakis.

What is going on over there? Is it that hard to check a few facts? Nick is trying to compare Murphy to other players drafted in his class, and just totally messed it up. It took me all of 5 minutes

What a scoop! Good job Nick! Keep it up....Maybe you can compare Delcarmen straight up to Eckersley in next Sunday's column! The best part about this entire passage is that the easiest comparison is Matt Murton, his fellow 1st round Sox draft pick who has had some solid major league success with the Cubs after leaving in the Nomar trade....and Nick neglects to really point out that since Murphy was a high school draftee and Murton was a college draftee, they really were on different timelines.

That's a disgrace.

The more I think about this the worse it gets. Of the 15 players he lists 2 of them are spelled incorrectly and 10 weren't drafted in 2003. TEN!!! 2 or 3 mistakes would be really bad. What the heck is the problem?

We were having a good laugh about this this morning.

They can't draft me out of Villa Gonzalez.

I signed for 15 K.
