Death of a Guzman

"He's not the finest character that ever lived. But he's a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him. So attention must be paid. He's not to be allowed to fall into his grave like an old dog. Attention, attention must be finally paid to such a person."

Who says the mainstream media takes a monolithic approach to reporting the news? I do. Today the Post, the Times and all discovered, independently yet simultaneously, that Goooz's once-solid defense has taken a nosedive.

Nevertheless, Goooz is still my boy. Because faith is belief in the face of overwhelming evidence. That, and we still don't have any other big league-ready shortstops.
