…what are “three things I really couldn’t give a shit about,” Alex.
It seems Aaron Rowand got in a little bit of “trouble” today because he dared to acknowledge that playing good baseball in a White Sox uniform was more enjoyable than playing mediocre baseball in a Giants uniform. This of course morphed into Aaron Rowand “dissing” the Giants and turning his back on San Francisco.
It also lost Aaron Rowand a total of zero fans in the Bay Area, bringing the number of remaining Rowand fans in the Bay Area down to anywhere from 3 to 7, depending on whether his family is in town.
At this point, complaining about Aaron Rowand’s sentimentality towards the Giants is like being offended that there’s a hair in your giant plate of hog shit. He seems to be a nice enough guy and he hustles at the right times and all that, but he’s also been paid a ton of money to basically be a fifth outfielder. It’s no fun for teh fans and certainly it has to weigh on Rowand’s mind.
So with that in mind, who can blame the guy for waxing nostalgic about the days when he was a solid performer and not the poster child for everything the team has done wrong in the last five years?
I can understand the need to generate comment and bring in readers, but can we cut back just a bit on the manufactured outrage? If I can some up the entire story by reading the headline and saying the word “no,” it really doesn’t need to be written.
