Separate the Wheat from the Chass

Murray Chass has no idea what's wrong with the Mets, but that won't stop him from writing about it anyway.

Roberts has written a book about Alex Rodriguez, and it is a journalistic abomination. That phrase probably won’t appear in any advertisement for the book, but it should to alert prospective readers what they would be getting. I use the word journalistic rather than literary for two reasons: 1, the book grew out of a Sports Illustrated project; 2, Roberts has been a newspaper and magazine reporter and columnist and as such has practiced the craft of journalism. Based on the book, however, she needs a lot more practice. In general, Roberts makes far too many serious allegations about Rodriguez to hide them behind anonymous quotes. Rodriguez deserves more, but more importantly readers deserve more. There is far too much in this attack book for Roberts to expect readers to take it on faith that her anonymous sources are real and they can be trusted.

The first time I think I have ever enjoyed reading something from Murray Chass, as he rips Selena Roberts's A-Rod book to shreds. Hat tip to David Pinto

You may have heard that some sportswriters don't like VORP. Guess what: they might be right. But not for the reasons they think. Exactly how far off are some of VORP's valuations of players when...

Royals Nation Does Not Exist!!!

25

According to arguably one of the laziest and mis- or ill-informed sports writers in the last decade, the term Royals Nation does not exist. I find this insulting and amusing at the same time. Anyone who has done any research into the Royals blogosphere knows that I frequent many other Royals websites using this moniker. In addition, I'd like to think my site holds some relevance in the blogosphere. (Not as much as Royals Review or some others, but it's been linked on many occasions). 255 members ain't bad. And, believe me, I'm not trying to sound egotistical or naive, but it shows how much Chass truly loathes the blogosphere, "Mother's Basement" types, and how little research he actually puts forth in the vast majority of his articles. There are several dozen extremely active Royals message boards and blogs out there. Maybe he should do a little research next time. Spread the word that Murray Chass is truly an awful sports writer who has no clue what he's talking about.
