Posnanski ripped in Chicago

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Shaggy, Jul 5, 2006.

    By Joe Cowley in the Sun-Times. The background is, Posnanski wrote a column ripping Ozzie Guillen for picking Mark Redman as the Royals All Star over Grudzelanek or DeJesus.


    Among the fun parts of this column:

    Yeah, like Posnanski needs to make a name for himself ::)

    Then there was this:
    followed later on by this:
    Yeah, city smack. Unpredictable and flawless, huh Cowley?

    By the way, Ozzie leaves his e-mail addy in this story for all you scribes that need it. And no, I'm not Posnanski.

    No, I know Poz, and he's definitely not shaggy.

    readers really care a lot when columnists get into pissing matches with other columnists in their columns. /sarcasm

    Joe Cowley = White Sox homer

    And if he even ventured online every so often to read real columnists, he would know Pos is a great baseball columnist.

    Will journalists stop writing about one another? Please?

    Selecting six of his own players as reserves, with another likely coming, Guillen can't say shit...

    It makes me wonder if the Chisox beat writers are inventing new ways to aggravate the guy. (NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT...)

    "Ozzie, Jason Whitlock wrote this morning that you like cock... Your thoughts?"

    "Ozzie, Bill Plaschke wrote this morning that you're ugly and your mother dresses you funny... Your thoughts?"

    I guess now that the Mariotti bullshit has calmed down, somebody in Chicago need something stupid to gripe about.

    What bush league crap that is.

    Who the hell is Joe Cowley to rip Pos? He would eat any Chi-town columnist for lunch.

    Someone can correct me on this, but I'm pretty sure I'm right.
    Either the Sun-Times (or it could have been the Tribune -- that's where I might be wrong) came after Poz a while back to no avail. The paper was wondering how he could turn down Chicago for KC.
    So yeah, this might have been brewing for a while.

    He wasn't much of a pitcher, either. How he ever had a no-hitter ...

    Wow, this was fanboy writing at its best. Taking pot shots at the city itself was weak, too. A sign of a writer with little talent.
