Of all people on this earth, I should be the last one to point out typos and oversights in our national newspaper. But if I don't do it, who will?
First we have this, from Robert MacLeod's piece on Philadelphia's championship drought.
I know Robert MacLeod knows Jimmy Rollins is a shortstop. You know Robert MacLeod knows Jimmy Rollins is a shortstop. Robert MacLeod knows that Robert MacLeod knows Jimmy Rollins is a shortstop. Then how did it make it to print and still sits uncorrected on the website?
The print edition of Blair's piece on Pat Gillick references the Seattle Mariners as the fourth place finisher in the American League Central. It has been corrected online, and Blair himself copped to the error in the comments section, but it's unsettling to see. Tight deadlines make baby Jesus cry, and good writers suffer.
