Train Wreck

Chris Jones is a very good writer. That's what makes efforts like this piece on Bobby Valentine all the more disappointing.

Jones must be wading through Robert Caro's epic biography of LBJ which somehow made him  think Bobby V is LBJ-like. The comparison is stupid. Jones might as well been stealing money from ESPN instead of passing off that piece as any sort of effort that required even the minimum of thought.

Lyndon Baines Johnson as an allegory for Bobby Valentine? What's next? Dustin Pedroia as John Quincy Adams?
