If Bloggin’ Is Wrong, We Don’t Wanna Be Right

This is What We Call Lazy Analysis

Posted by wct6 on July 19, 2007


Maybe we are just being paranoid Cleveland fans, but the following bit of “analysis” from Tim Kurkjian this morning on “Mike and Mike”  really wrankled us –

“I have to see the Indians make the playoffs before I’ll beleive they can do it.”

What did these teams all have in common – ’06 Tigers, ’05 White Sox, ’04 Red Sox, ’03 Marlins, ’02 Angels & Giants?  All of these teams were “unproven” when they either went to, or won the World Series.

If Tim had had some actual analysis as to why he didn’t think the Indians could make the post season, if for example he had said –

“Their pitching rotation lacks consistency and depth”


“They have a dearth of reliable bullpen arms outside of Betancourt and Borowski”


“Trot Nixon couldn’t hit sand if he fell off a goddam camel”

we would have been able to live with it.  But to say they can’t make the playoffs this year because they haven’t made the playoffs recently is stupid.

    I’ll believe Tim Kurkjian when he stops crying for two seconds.

  2. You sure you’re not an Indians blog?
