Yep. You read it right.
No punch line or “insert joke here” comments either.
Much has been made today of the SI.Com “best/worst owners” list in which Peter Angelos is listed as the worst owner in baseball. Many folks in town are belly-laughing saying, “Yeah, right, tell us something we don’t know…” – And the apologists in town are saying (writing) dramatic, drippy things like, “I just can’t stomach the fact that people are feeling vindicated by this article.”
As it is most of the time with the Orioles, I’ll be the voice of reason. Allow me to come to Peter’s rescue.
I’ll have it up at WNST.net soon enough — maybe later tonight, maybe not until tomorrow morning.
I can assure you, though, that I will defend – in some way(s) – the work of Angelos as an Owner.
That doesn’t mean his organization will be exempt from criticism. Oh no, not in the least.
Check back later today or tomorrow morning and you’ll read it for yourself.
