There's a Reason They're Called "Amateurs"

Monday 14 Jun 2004

I'm sending out a bonus rant because 1) it's current right now, and 2) I don't really have to write it.

Sometimes, someone else beats me to a rant; in this case, it was even an athlete I respect! John Kruk, lifetime .300 hitter and member of the dirty-dozen 1993 Phillies who made it to the World Series, has spoken out on the load of bullcrap that is baseball's yearly amateur draft...and he said pretty much the same thing I was going to. You can read all about it here (or here if the original no longer exists).
