The Phillies didn’t win the World Series in 1993.

I’ll be the first to say something about the Orioles, then.

Duquette is assembling a very accomplished front office, and this restructuring is long overdue.

Fred Ferreira is a super scout and an even better person. He is a solid baseball man and a solid person.  Dan Duquette and he worked together assembling many of the great peices of the Montreal Expos farm and major league system when they worked together before.  We wish them success with the Orioles.

First off, why are front office hires crap?

Second, ad-supported blogs like MLBTR most likely don’t have the budget for editors. So, unless you want to pay for this site, give them a break.

Doh, the first post awarded the 1993 World Series to the Phillies. A gross distortion of fact.

There’s a difference between a gross distortion of fact and a typo.

“went to the World Series” can very easily be typed as “won the World Series” by accident.

My advice: Take a breather. If you get upset about every typo you see on the internet, you’re going to have a tough time.

Really, you must be a suporter of “no one left behind”.
A baseball blog does not get the leeway to invent WS wins!!!
