The Dickensian aspect (of trolling)

In celebration of its 175th anniversary, the Baltimore Sun named the Top 175 Maryland athletes, culminating with No. 1…. Babe Ruth.

Ruth is a Baltimore product and his role in popularizing (and just being awesome at) baseball is unimpeachable, but Ruth was a Yankee and the Orioles play in Baltimore. Readers, based on the comments at least, seem upset with the choice.

I say it’s a fine one, and hardly even trolling. If you’re including guys born in Maryland on your list, you’ve got to include Babe Ruth. And then, what… you’re going to put Babe Ruth somewhere other than No. 1? C’mon.
