    He's Trying to make up for Borges but is a poor substitute.

    No Jersey Selected



    I guess you are referring to the fact that the Green Bay fans did it for real when the Vikings bus was heading to the stadium, right?

    I thought bad about Moss until I saw that a few days later and wondered how most of the media never reported the reason why Moss acted that way. I subsequently decided not to slam Moss but thought he could have taken the higher road.

    Ha! Ordway just accused Borges of writing under the pen name, Dan Shaughnessy . . .

    Hilarious!

    Dan Shaunessy is a consumate asswipe who covers the RedSox because he is too dumb to know anything about any sport that requires any knowledge.

    His opinion are not worth a bucket of warm spit.

    Having no knowledge he can only survive on writing personal garbage and invective; (look at his baseball coverage, and how he has kept a job).

    GO AWAY Dan. If kraft were smart, he would pull his press credentials. Let the Sox soap opera put up with him. The daily game gives him his stories.

    What makes you think he knows anything about baseball? Believe me the guy's a complete fraud.

    I have no problem with anything penned in that article; he is right. Why are you guys unable to look at things objectively? I like the deal, and I am happy to have Randy Moss as a Patriot; however, the guys history concerning character is covered with warts. Just as Shaugnessy said Moss will be an excellent acquisition if he adopts the attitude of the existing locker room, if he does anything other than that he'll be out of Foxborough faster than he could ever imagine. So what's your problem with the piece? Stop being such Patriot apologists. The Patriots have certainly gone out an a limb for Randy and now it's up to him to decide whether or not to succeed here.

    Do you remember who Christian Peter was and what he did?

    Your insinuation that baseball requires no knowledge is just flat out stupid. Baseball has more strategy and situational variables than football.

    A guy who dogged it on the field (and wasn't alone on that wretched team) is in the same boat as a rapist?

    A baseball game situation changes with every single pitch. . . .Football has defined assignments and the players are given a game plan and a strategy that is defined player by player on every play.

    That Shaughnessy - he has a face made for newspaper reporting.

    When I read a Shaughnessy article about the Patriots, I play a game. The game is to stop reading once I find a baseball reference. And the winner is always me, since I never get to finish his column.

    He also ran his vehicle into a crossing guard. Yes he is in the same boat. There are question marks concerning the character.

    How is that different from baseball? On every pitch the manager tells his players what to do, where to position themselves, whether to steal...

    And I'm a huge baseball fan.

    No way. The only positions in baseball that are anywhere near the complexity of just about any non-special teans NFL position is pitcher and catcher.

    Sorry, this just isn't true.

    He pushed her with his car, and that is an a-hole maneuver, no doubt, but maybe we should ask her which she would rather have done to her. :rolleyes:

    Situational hitting in itself is all predicated on strategy (when to take, when not to take, when to hit behind a runner to move him over, etc., etc.). These situations change with literally EVERY pitch.

    Now, if you want to compare Leonard Little to Christian Peter, I'm listening.
