Well said, my friend. Sometimes the questions are dumb but responding in the way the coaches and athletes sometimes do shifts to dumbness-factor totally onto their own shoulders. Justin Verlander, future Hall of Fame pitcher, 21-6 this year, just lost again last night for an 0-6 record in World Series play. I haven’t seen any video of it yet but I’m certain he got some difficult questions, some he believed were stupid, But I’ll go out on a limb here and predict he handled it with dignity and class.

....Which is why the media, up until now, has gone easy on Verlander for not being able to produce in the World Series. I think a lot of the media's wrath relates to how likeable a player is or isn't. Verlander is well liked, so he gets off lighter. His lack of success is mentioned in passing. Joe Buck and the crew on Fox were even making excuses for him last night.
