Re: Jeff Pearlman: hurting baseball, hurting Griffey (again)
Good post. I'd be interested to hear more about Pearlman's history...
What really bothers me about this excerpt (and this'll overlap some with what you've said) that has been plastered all over ESPN.com for the past few days is that it's written in a tone almost like that of a work of fiction -- his descriptions almost take the form of inner monologues for both Bonds and Griffey at times, describing what (he thinks) they were thinking on that night. Where is the factual basis for his claims? The author didn't interview Bonds or Griffey for this book. His only sources for this alleged conversation are anonymous and unaccountable. It's very bad journalism, and in my opinion is just a load of exploitative garbage.
