I often rip on Joe Morgan for being an idiot, because he often is. In reading the transcript of his chat from yesterday, though, I have to give credit to him for making at least one intelligent observation.
Joey, FL: Joe…SOMEONE has gotta ask about A-Rod. Bold prediction for his future? Seems unlikely he’ll leave NY, right?
Joe Morgan: I think he stays in New York, because if he goes anywhere else, it will look like he’s quitting. I think he’ll stay in New York, and he’ll have a good year. Everyone forgets that he was the MVP last year. Every player, no matter how great, has an off year. I don’t even think his year was that off.
I never thought I’d say this, but … wait for it … wait for it …
Joe Morgan just took the words right out of my mouth.
There, I said it. I feel dirty, but I stand by it. I’m gonna go take a shower now.
