Moron Stuart Scott just said while they showed Jacobs Field on the screen: "... They may call it the Mistake by the Lake, but it is anything but a mistake..."

Idiot doesn't even realize that's what they called the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium. Wow...

It just drives home the point that has been made by others on here. They force their people to take a position on a story whether they believe it or not.
How sad that they are so desperate to create controversy, and over A Rod none the less. Imagine that.

:t to Steve Phillips....

The only baseball person I'd want to see debate himself would be Dock Ellis right before his acid-fueled no-no....

Here's a link to Wikipedia on the old Cleveland Stadium... they don't refer to Jacobs as "Mistake by the Lake..." it was the old stadium they called that, not the new one - that's why I called Stuart Scott a moron, he was using the wrong reference.

I'm glad I wasn't watching when this was on. Steve Phillips can be informative in some areas, but entertainment wise he is very lacking. That's why ESPN should have kept the HR and Kruk combo.

i dunno but their new ratings system looks a lot like the one my friends and I came up with 5 years ago, we were drunk at the time and only spend 30 minutes on it but they are eerily similar and I think ours were actually better.

it's fair to say we all lost


:b That's hilarious by the way. Remember when ESPN used to have thrilling baseball analysis, back when Gammons was a Baseball Tonight regular? That's when it was worth tuning into ESPN nightly for their baseball coverage. Unfortunately, Baseball Tonight has been reduced to a shell of its former self. It's always Phillips, Kruk and Eric Young, as though somehow they intentionally choose the worst analysts and put them on each night just to insult my intelligence :t . All this while they have Stark, Kurkjian, Hershiser and the occasional Gammons appearance at their disposal. God forbid they put any combination of those guys in the same room, for it might spark an intelligent debate.
