And I don’t say that because of his well-documented affair or harassment case way back when or his sex addiction or whatever. Those things do not impact his ability to talk about baseball.
I say that because Steve Phillips thinks Carlos Beltran isn’t awesome at baseball. Steve Phillips thinks Carlos Beltran doesn’t get the job done in pressure situations.
I say that because Steve Phillips would rather get bogged down in weird post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacies than what’s happening in actual baseball games.
And maybe, just maybe, I say that because I’m still a little bitter about the whole Mo Vaughn thing.
