Because this story just won’t die….Murray Chass of the NYT weighs in today. His take: It’s not A-Rod, it’s not the Sox, and it ain’t RSN either. It’s the media, stupid! When all else fails, blame the fourth estate. Murray’s hot, too:
“Athletes have long accused reporters of creating stories, and, sadly, this is one of those instances. It has become one of the most distasteful instances I have witnessed in 45 years of covering baseball.” (Our italics)
Murray’s down in Ft. Myers. Could someone at Red Sox camp please by the poor man a drink? We’ll pay.
