    Don’t tempt the trolls, Craig.

    Is there anything worse than a typo in the headline?

      I know, right. We need stiffer penalties for headline typos, fines, bans, jail time, whatever it takes to rid society of this plague.

        Lifetime ban from the Baseball Blogger Hall of Fame.

        Wait, wouldn’t that be a reward?

        See how Craig got rewarded with all those page hits after his “Dog Fister” typo. It’s a tragedy.

    “Say what you will about A-Rod − and we’ve certainly said a lot − he was, in fact, the only active player to attend the service.” – Bill Madden, NY Daily News.

    Michael Weiner was certainly a hardly working, clever boss of MLBPA, but sadly, to the players he was hired to represent, it seemed to be something missing that the incoming boss might need to address.
