World Series Game 2: Mark McGwire Is Somehow Under The Radar

It's Game 2 of the World Series. Mark McGwire is one of the coaches on a team in the World Series. To this point, I have not read an overwrought column about what this means. This means one of two things:

  1. I'm living in an echo chamber, where all of my baseball news is provided by people who are unlikely to write such a column. This is a situation that's good for my sanity, but bad for a baseball writer. I should read everybody, not just the people I agree with.

  2. Such a column has not been written. This would make me have to rethink everything I think I know about sports writing, journalism, and the country in which I live. And, brothers and sisters, I just don't have that sort of time. It's a lot easier to hold tight to my preconceived notions.

So I'm not looking into it any further. Either answer is bad, so I'll just resume not caring about the Cardinals' hitting coach, Mark McGwire (who seems to be doing a heckuva job, by the way.)
