Peter Gammons = Delusional Jeter lover

So Peter Gammons has a column up today where makes some of the worst declarations we have seen in a long time...

"So Derek Jeter has now played in eight All-Star games and the American League has won them all, except for the tie in 2002."
Peter, have you ever heard the phrase "correlation does not equal causation"? To try and tie Derek Jeter as the sole reason/factor why the AL has won the last 10 AS games is just ludicrous. This is the kind of crap I would expect from Kevin Kiernan or Murray Chass. Guess the AL's overwhelming record in interleague play is just coincidence..or Jeter has a magical influence on all the AL teams who have been destroying the NL ones...just ridiculous.

"Whether or not Sabean wishes to continue is not clear, but the man has done a phenomenal job. "
Hello?? Am I the only person who sees the Giants the last 3 years as the oldest average teams in the majors? Or the as the team traded away Liriano (future potential star), Boof Bonser (mid-level #4-#5 starter) and Joe Nathan (AS level premier closer) for 1 year of an above average catcher, Pierzynski. That terrible trade alone should relegate him to the bottom half of all GM's in baseball much less his job of assembling old and unproductive teams the last 3 years. Oh and he paid $16 million/year to a guy with 0 oustanding contract offers. Last but not least, the $17 million he is paying for a starter with an ERA+ of 88 and a WHIP of 1.45 who strikes out barely 4 guys per start.
