Jeff Pearlman: Luhnow has "no remote clue"

Sports Illustrated's Jeff Pearlman has a post up on SI regarding Roger Clemens and the Astros honoring the 10-year Personal Services contract they both signed.

We should take a moment to note that Luhnow has a duel degree in business and engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from Northwestern. He is an intelligent person with, no doubt, good intentions and a big heart and...

No remote clue.


Read the whole thing for yourself, and then remember that Pearlman wrote a book about Roger Clemens where the description of the book is as follows:
In The Rocket That Fell to Earth, New York Times bestselling author Jeff Pearlman reconstructs the pitcher's life—from his Ohio childhood to the mounds of Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium—to reveal a flawed and troubled man whose rage for baseball immortality took him to superhuman heights before he crashed down to earth.

So we can guess that Pearlman isn't going to agree with any thoughts regarding the Astros - or anybody else - employing Clemens further.

Of course, Pearlman claimed that no team had a wider connection to PEDs than the Rangers and Astros. And also said that "if Bagwell didn't use (steroids), then the world is flat."

So there you have it.

I can't believe you posted a link to a Pearlman article on this subject (or on any subject for that matter). Seriously, what were y'all thinking?!? Pearlman has made a 'career' of Tabloid'esque sensationalistic journalism, and is unabashed when it comes to promotion of whatever rhetoric of the day he is selling. He floats rumor and innuendo as if it was gospel. Giving him links on the subject merely translates into hits/readership for him, which in the internet readership world translates to credibility. Color me disappointed that Astros County did ANYTHING that could even remotely translate to credibility on his behalf...
