Yeah, the boys have all their bases covered.
So now I have a question for both Deep Throat and for New York Times writer George S. Schmidt, who broke the story today that both Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz, those onetime Red Sox bookend power bats, revealing they are two of the names on the not-so-secret list of performance-enhancing abusers compiled by the commissioner's office in 2003.
First let me say Deep Throat is what I'm calling whoever is leaking these names to reporters like Schmidt of the Times.
Now the question: How do you decide, either you, Deep Throat, or in concert with your trusted writer and conduits to the world, the scoop-hungry press, which players to bust, which to call out, which names you make public?
Why just the big fish? Why was it A-Rod first, a story broken by Selena Roberts? And now Manny and Big Papi, info apparently slipped surreptitiously to Schmidt? Why just the superstars?
Is it because their names make the biggest splash? Is there some other agenda involved, something personal?
