Joe Morgan Somehow Convincing Boston Fans He Played For The Red Sox

Monday, June 30, 2008

I don't know if you blame the submitter or the ESPN editors for this, but that's ESPN is showing that our friend Dr. Joe Morgan played for the Red Sox and that's one of the reasons they should win Titletown.

Boston has to be named TitleTown because championships don't lie.....

....The Boston Red Sox have won seven World Series titles and 12 AL pennants. Whether it's the Babe, Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Rice, Fred Lynn, Dwight Evans, Luis Tiant, Joe Morgan, Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens, Pedro Martinez, Nomar, Manny, Shilling or David Ortiz, the Sox have always had some of the best players in the game and their world series titles show that.
I first thought he was referring to Red Sox Manager Joe Morgan, but the fact that he only coached the team for four years (signed by the Boston Braves but never played) and that the submitter referred to the list as the "best players"....makes me think it's our Joe Morgan.

I know he's involved somehow. Actually come to think of it, I bet you bballerforlife34 is in fact Joe Morgan! I don't know how he's doing it, but by 2015 we'll think Joe won 24 World Series, 13 MVPs, and 42 Gold Glove Awards.

Beantown is TitleTown (ESPN)

(Thanks to Greg for the tip)

I also love how they should be Titletown because they won 7 titles yet only 5 of those players were on those teams and one of those players is better known for his time spent on their bitter rival.

Bballerforlife34 can't be Dr. Morgan, because he didn't include Davey Concepcion on the list of "some of the best players in the game", and we all know that Dr. Morgan never fails to mention his old pal Davey whenever some sort of baseball greatness is involved.

Titletown should just go to the Big Red Machine who, according to the doctor, is the greatest team of all time.

This Titletown BS reminds me of their 50 states in 50 Days thing they did a few years ago. Absolutely wasteful and lazy on ESPN's part. When they did NY they went to a NY hoops tournament. Not Yankee Stadium, MSG, Shea, Saratoga Race Track, a number of golf courses, a NASCAR track upstate, Arthur Ashe Stadium at the US Open, or even Ralph Wilson Stadium but an obscure street ball tournament.
