Just a reminder: Jose de Jesus Ortiz has better access than you

In the previously mentioned bandwagon piece from Jose de Jesus Ortiz, we see this throwaway line, purportedly designed to exemplify the unity of this team:

Still, with a rotation that many so-called baseball experts ridiculed, the Astros are on a roll. These players have a ton of pride, and you can bet that many of them are playing with chips on their shoulders, including Miguel Tejada and Ivan Rodriguez.

Tejada and Rodriguez don't want to get traded, which is why they often ask me what I'm hearing.


So just to be clear: When Miggs and Pudge need information, they go to Jose de Jesus Ortiz. Not you.

JJO gets more annoying by the day.

Agreed. Name-dropping, like line-jumping, is not a sport.

I've given up on JJO. I just get the highlights from here now. The only chron writer I visit is Zachary Levine.

Ty said...

Why visit any of them when TC will do all the leg work for you? And with style.

Ty said...

Oh, man, I just name dropped TC, didn't I?

Spruce said...

If we could get JJO to drop TC's name then I might find him tolerable.

You guys is the best...
