Sharp "What does it take to get fired around here"
Nice Article by Drew Sharp on Sunday saying that Pudge's Detroit Jersey should be retired.
However even the the fact that it is rediculously short doesnt mean Drew decided to fact check it.
"It's unlikey that Rodriguez will insist upon the Olde English D on his ceremonial Hall of Fame plaque. He'll probably pick Texas because it was the Rangers who gave him his start."
Of course this is simply not how the Hall of Fame works. The Hall of Fame chooses which cap to put the Hall of Famer under. Now this was changed about 1o years ago, beause Wade Boggs wanted to have a Tampa Bay cap, and some players were having auctions on which team they would go under. So it did make news and oh its on the FAQ of the Hall of Fame website. So it didnt take much looking up, maybe 2 minutes.
The choice of which team’s logo appears on a player’s plaque is the Museum's decision, though we always consider the wishes of an inductee. As a history Museum, it's important that the logo be emblematic of the historical accomplishments of that player's career. A player's election to the Hall of Fame is a career achievement, and as such, every team for whom he played is listed on the plaque; however, the logo selection is based on where that player makes his most indelible mark."
Why does the Free Press put up with such a lackadaisical and horrible writer that makes all its sports coverage suffer? He drags the whole quality of their sports section down. There's probably 50 more sports writers in the area who would spend more time and energy than Mr. Sharp, I think Brian spends more time on his writing in a day than Drew Sharp does in a month.
