Let us pause for a moment to curse the name of Evan Grant, the rat bastard that used to work for us and had the audacity to quit over a little thing like getting a better job offer that pays him, like, 15 times more money than he was making.
Done? Okay, now turn your attention to this little ditty Grant wrote about the Cliff Lee imbroglio. A national ESPN radio guy said that the Rangers ace has been “mailing it in” because he doesn’t really care about his new team, doesn’t like the state of Texas, and just wants a better job next year (which on its face makes no sense; you don’t get a better job offers by sucking, except in Grant’s case). Grant called B.S. on the radio guy and on the local ESPN site. He use some rather convincing stats to point out that Lee hasn’t mailed it in, and he implied that the ESPN folks are simply making stuff up when they say “sources” told them Lee doesn’t care about the Rangers.
So yesterday, local ESPN radio talker Randy Galloway circled the wagons with his co-workers. On his show, which I’m told airs on 103.3 on the FM dial, he called Grant “lazy” and “a weasel.”
Yes! He is a weasel! And worse!
