Google News wants to irritate me

I subscribe to the Google News feed, which is supposed to email me when there's an article about the Rangers.  What I get in reality are various law enforcement updates involving the real Texas Rangers and three day old AP game stories.

But then, every once in a while, I get the feeling that Google News is trying to purposely taunt me.  Like when I get a news feed alert for this article.  And a headline that says "Nolan Ryan: The Greatest Pitcher Ever."  Which uses as evidence of its claim the team batting averages of the teams Ryan played for.

Clearly, Google News just wants to bait me into a "Nolan Ryan is overrated" rant.  But your sneaky tricks won't work with me, Internet Colossus!!!
