Low hanging fruit

I try to refrain from directing my readers to the various mainstream media fiskings over on FJM. While often hilarious, they don't constitute (and are not meant to constitute) serious baseball analysis and are generally heavy on profanities. This particular send up of an almost astonishingly ignorant view of baseball (and perhaps life in general) is no exception to these rules, but if you were just thinking that the one thing you could really use right now was an outrageous dismantling of an even more outrageous piece of horrible baseball writing, your wish has been granted.

As my only comment on the substance of the article itself allow me to simply say that I think that baseball is big enough for everyone who wants to like it, regardless of how one derives the the most enjoyment out of it. So for those of you who want to talk about RBIs, Ws, Ls, and AVGs, have at it! We all love the same game, we just talk about it in different languages!
