    I don't say this often....but I agree with Paul.

    At first I wondered what his motivation was for writing this (not that he had to have one), the bit at the end clarified it. I had no idea he had a daughter with downs as well.

    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Yes, Doc is a fine writer, I almost always read his stuff here locally.

    I often disagree with his sports opinions, but Paul Daugherty is at his very best when he writes about his daughter, Jillian the Magnificent. It's really fine writing, comes from the heart, and I encourage you to google it and read some of it.

    If the man gives up sports writing, he'll have a future!

    Thanks for linking. My younger brother has a disorder that results in him having a similar level of intellect and capability to individuals with Down Syndromes. It's such a hard line to walk, getting people to understand and (to an appropriate degree) accommodate his special needs while at the same affording him the same kind of opportunities others get and demanding/expecting good performance.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Great points, I work in a mental health agency, so I get the exploitation issue as well. However, now Paul used his platform to exploit his personal agenda, when he should have gone privately to the Reds first. If he did and they were resistant to the idea, fine, now maybe its ethical to write from an injustice angle, but I see this as using his position to advance his own personal agenda.
