DesigNate Robertson: Defending Marcus Thames Against an Awful Hatchet Job
LA Times columnist TJ Simers repeatedly tried to provoke one of the truly nice guys in baseball, Marcus Thames, for no reason other than an excuse to write an incredibly bad column. I didn't want to link to that awful poor excuse for journalism. However, I'm happy to link to Rogo's fisking of it. The Dodgers should have pulled Simers' credentials by now. He's not a journalist, he's a sideshow. He's an awful one. Shame on him.
