The Internet has its obvious advantages – which I don’t have to tell you about. It, however, has its disadvantages as well, and one of the biggest is that anybody can post things online.
Take this guy who “tried out for the Phillies in 1987.” He was commenting on whether or not Barry Bonds would have broken the major-league home run record….
If this guy was a baseball fan as he suggests, then how come he didn’t realize that 1994 was the strike season? Read the following excerpt:
Now, the guy clearly was referring to 1994 as one of the seasons Bonds went on the DL. Uhm, no. That year, the Giants played 115 games before the strike hit. Bonds appeared in 112 games. So, nice try.
Learn to do proper research – heck, none was needed to begin with because most baseball fans remember ’94 as the strike year – before posting crap.
