Ugly baseball tends to make people testy.
Apparently, even the writers.
Tim MacMahon takes a couple of subtle shots at Evan Grant today regarding Grant's defending of Jon Daniels:
Which result in MacMahon taking the gloves off:
In the future, I'll paraphrase your work much more carefully. Or perhaps I should just stick to straight quotes. Like this one:
"The Rangers are going to win the AL West this year."
Don't feel like you need to defend that pre-season prediction. I'm sure Richard Durrett will pop on here soon enough to explain why you were right and make sure any feathers I ruffled are put back in place.
In related news, the team with the league's worst record just tied the score on Mark Teixeira's three-run homer.
I have to wonder how long this arrangement over at Seamheads is going to last.
Having read MacMahon's stuff at the Mavs blog the past two playoff series, it seems that his schtick is being antagonistic...I imagine that, so long as the Rangers have the worst record in the league, he's going to make reference to that whenever possible.
But I'm not entirely sure whether this series of increasingly acidic exchanges between the baseball guys (or Grant, really...Durrett hasn't really gotten real involved in it) and the newcomer is just schtick, or is as personal as it is beginning to appear from the outside.
