  1. Usually I don’t mind but the grammatical errors in this post make it tough to read.

  3. The first sentence in the second paragraph contains the worst comma splice I’ve ever seen.

  4. RIP Greg Dobbs

  5. Wow, must’ve skimmed right over those errors. I suppose proofreading is a thing of the past, eh?

  6. I saw some errors too, but didn’t notice as many until noticing everyone else started to mention them. I only managed to to notice one otherwise- maybe I’m just not keen to that stuff. Point being, it isn’t like these guys don’t know how to spell or puntuate. They all churn out dozens of articles for you guys in a week, and probably don’t always take every extra second to proofread it. This isn’t Newsweek or Time though. This is a baseball blog- a very good one, at that. If there’s an error here or there, big deal. I’d rather them continue to churn out articles on guys like Dobbs & Jay Payton on a daily basis (because I truly enjoy reading this stuff, not because I’m being a sarcastic donkey) in addition to all of the other great content if it means a few errors here or there. This is a great site, and the writers aren’t dummies. I think it’s kind of ignorant to correct so many things at once (unless they ask of readers to… in which case I’ll shut my trap).

    Greg Dobbs though… when I did click this link, it killed me to try to remember his first name. “Kevin? Kelly? Gary?”…. I ran a bunch of random ones through my head before I got to Greg. It’s hard to think back on him being 25 w/ the M’s, that’s all I’ll say. Seems like he’s been around forever to me.

  8. Wow, people are assholes.

    Dobbs has one more thing on his calling card: he’s one of the most universally beloved teammates in the league. It doesn’t produce anything in terms of actual value, but everyone loves him.

  9. Yeah, honestly you guys need some respect. Sure it may have had a few errors but it certainly wasn’t unreadable.

    Anyway, as a Phils fan, I’m sad to see him go. He’s one of those guys that “plays the game right”, he always hustles to first base and always swings hard. Whatever team that gets him won’t regret it.

  10. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to expect writers to write well. And the errors being pointed out are simple, basic ones which should be spotted and fixed very quickly. If they don’t have time to proofread, then maybe they should consider cutting back on the workload because they’re not doing the site any favors by going with quantity over quality. Even if it’s “just” a baseball blog.

  11. It seems like the Mets and Phils are in perpetual competition to see who can have the worst bench.

  12. An individual unbiased tone of voice on Fox news inside the Television show. He still carries a genuinely difficult immigration law plan. This individual managed to graduate about the Harvard Higher education. At this moment he has his 1 Airwaves Show. He do not just like the actual America chief executive.
