The Inevitable JoPo Column about the Tony Pena, Jr. Bobblehead

2

Classic JoPo: the qualified criticism of TPJ's ability (He's a nice guy! He's a great defender!) along with not mentioning Dayton Moore in connection with him; "compliments" to Alex Gordon (he'll be an All-Star one day! Just like Mark Redman!) followed by a lengthy criticism of his defense, strikeouts, batting average, unflattering historical comparisons; the mournful retrospective glances at Beltran, Dye, and Damon; the long historical digression on Norm Cash (Hey, Joe, does a mere 11% walk rate this year really count as Gordon "improving his plate discipline?" So generous.) Still, as usual, it's well written, and whatever the specifics, Posnanski does a good job of illustrating his overall point about the vagaries of fandom. This should definitely make the anthology. Keep it up, Kiddo.
