Why Fox Should Not Be Allowed To Cover Baseball
Did you want more evidence beyond having Joe Buck as a commentator that Fox should not be allowed near baseball? Allow me to submit this piece of evidence, an article on Fox sports asking fans to vote whether Jeter was a cheat for faking the hit by pitch in yesterdays game. Cheating would mean that you broke a rule of the game in order to give an unfair advantage. As far as I know, faking a HBP is not against the rules, its good baseball. I've seen many players do it, and to varying degrees of success. Jeter happened to pull it off quite well, does that mean he's a cheater? I don't think so. But leave it up to Fox's crack staff of sports analysts to come up with this one, plus a little help from the associated press I see, must be a slow playoff race, because this is just plain nonsense.
