    Oh, Tony was great. He just got a little excited from time to time, and I happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Before and after that interlude, I got wonderful stuff from him.

    One of my favorite memories is watching the end of the OJ chase in the Tiger Stadium clubhouse with Tony doing commentary. I can't print a single word of it, as anyone who covered Tony would expect, but it was hysterical.

    He was worthless for electronic media and he would cut you off in a heartbeat if you ever referred to him as a utility man, but he was never dull.

    Phillips was awful the year I had him in Strat-O-Matic. A 4 at every position and really only a good hitter from one side of the plate.

    CT: beautiful.

    Real Chicago journalists (from my time . . . ) weep.

    Are these the same "real journalists" who needed Guillen to shed light on the whole thing?
    The same "real journalists" who were beaten by a blogger at the start of the year and now by a manager?

    Holy shit, how did he even get a big-time job, much less keep one?

    DyePack: My hunch is that the real journalists in Chicago found something better (more interesting? more important?) to write about than Jay Mariotti.

    I guess the standards have changed.

    The Doctor is correct. On the tab side, shit-stirring is paramount.

    Here it is (link here: http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/bb/3999666.html

    First few grafs:
    Jackie Robinson, Roberto Clemente and Felipe Alou broke barriers and paid heavy prices while eliminating stereotypes so America could look at Latinos and African-Americans with respect. At times, they bit their tongues. On important occasions, they spoke loud and led the chorus for the rights of their people.

    Because of people such as Robinson, Clemente and Alou, now we rarely ever see characters such as Buckwheat of the Our Gang movies or the hapless Latino character that you once saw in old Westerns. Robinson, Clemente and Alou are reasons their people are no longer looked upon as caricatures.

    Sadly, however, Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen is setting his people back with his series of ignorant and vulgar rants....

    If that's true, that's wholly unacceptable for anyone -- big-city columnist or weekly preps writer.
