Moore Feels ‘Good’ // Adjective Fans Sigh

ST. PETERSBURG — Matt Moore felt fine Sunday, a day after the 24-year-old left-hander threw a simulated game. “I feel good, just normal soreness,” Moore said. “You know, okay. Adequate. Better than bad. Not quite great.” “So you’d say you’re feeling acceptable?” asked this reporter. “Yeah, satisfactory. Decent. Tolerable. Bearable.” “And how have you been spending your time on the disabled list?” “Studying for the SAT.”

This is the newsiest news since one fan “attended” a recent “game.” Why did the quotation marks around “good” bother me enough to write a post about them? I don’t know! But they did!

And why did it take two authors to write that article?

I’ll bet you it has something to do with Obama.
