Schadenfreude 67 (A Continuing Series)


Mike Lupica, Daily News:
But if you believe his amazing version of his drug history, he wasn't using drugs when he basically went straight from high school to the big leagues, wasn't using them throughout what would have been his college years, only started using them when he got to Texas at the age of 25, going on 26. That was when he finally became "young and stupid."


Joel Sherman, Post:
This was the new story. This should not be confused with the old story, which was just eight days old, but was now treated by Alex Rodriguez and his phalanx of handlers, lawyers and advisers like something wrinkled and useless and in need of being discarded. ...

Brian Cashman tried to explain the inexplicable by saying he thinks A-Rod was being honest, but came across poorly because, "I don't think Alex is very good at communicating, to be quite honest." ...


Bob Raissman, Daily News:
Missing was a combo soundtrack of a sad violin and Suzyn Waldman crying. Except the moment was so hokey, so forced, even the Georgie Girl, who once starred on the Broadway stage, was probably home laughing out loud.

She knows bad acting when she sees it.

Great Daily News and Post headlines! As you know, I don't really care about any of this, but it is very amusing.

You could also add the Metro and AM New York if you really want to pile on. I wonder what Hoy ran with.

Slow work day, so who's counting?

I'm amused the Globe went with "(bottom)" rather than "(pictured)" on this photo of Papi's arms to indicate which wrist was his left one. Literate toddlers still struggling with left versus right will be relieved.

Slow for me too. Wonder why it was consistently slow across north america land.
