The last take -- and best take -- on the Mets-Walter Reed non-story

Sam Page from Amazin’ Avenue nails the New York press to a freakin’ tree:

The best part is how these journalists created the players’ insidious motives--by involving baseball. Because they’re not team players on the field and in the clubhouse, it’s no surprise they fund Hamas and hunt bald eagles in their spare time, all to get back at Fred Wilpon for paying them hundreds of millions of dollars. The press created a story to play on the universal sentiment that there are things greater than baseball and money, but in doing so, completely trivialized something important by unduly making it about baseball and money.

I’m with him 95%. I’ll just note, though, that there’s nothing wrong with hunting tasty, tasty bald eagles. The wild turkey should have been our national bird anyway.
