They're Driving Me Nuts

I had to click on Michele's link to the Post's recap of yesterday's win over the Orioles. First, being an anal gramar perfectionist, I caught a misplaced modifier in their article. As if that ain't bad enough, now I'm wondering whether they were watching the same game as everyone else. To wit:

When talking about A-Rod giving Brian Roberts a bloody nose on a potential double play, they write: ". . . the throw to first didn't get Gary Sheffield in time." Um, guys, there was no throw to first. The ball popped out of Roberts' mitt.

Next when talking about Sierra's homerun, they write: ". . . it went far enough to make Chen's outing a waste." Since the score was tied at 5 at the time and Chen was long gone, the outing was already a waste.

I'll try to calm down now. By the way, on another front, the Post is asking today who is the Yankees greatest player ever, excluding current players. Thoughts?

Man, that's a tough one. Mattingly? Mantle? Ruth? Gehrig? This household is divided on the question - and if I were to go with my heart and not my head, I'd say Munson.

My dad saw Lou Gehrig play and was convinced that Gehrig was the best Yankee ever I'll have to go with Lou Gehrig. But, since my dad grew up In San Diego, he was convinced that the greatest player ever was Ted Williams.
