What's your f'n problem AN

I listened to the knbr interview with Milton Bradley and then with BB.  I read Ratto often as often as he's printed because I enjoy his columns.  As far as the most recent Ratto column and Ralph Bar., what was so negative.  Post after post people were bagging on Ralph throughout the diary.

In particular, I thought Ralph went out of his way to speak well of Bradley.  Maybe I have different opinions on reporting and interviewing, but I expect these kinds of questions to be asked, given Milton's past.  I'm not against Milton, I'm glad to have him, but he said that stuff, he did that stuff.  People have an obligation to hear his side before they make judgements about him, but reporters have an obligation to question him about it.  Tolbert did a nice job of lightening the mood when BB came out firing to start the interview.  While the A's

So long as he stays healthy, the story will be how he has finally found redemption and proved his critics wrong.  

As for Ratto, I think he often doles out high praise but buries it deep in his web of sarcasm, but that's why I like his columns.  And for the most part, he's right.  

And besides, what's your F'ing problem AN.  We're getting a real Christmas this year with Bradley, Esteban, one more year of Zito and maybe Frank Thomas.  Management is saying, "let's spend money and win now".  After years of eating our vegatables, we now get to have our desserts while the yankees and red sox stare at their oatmeal.

Oh, and is that really Michael Urban posting under the same AN Handle.  If so, that's pretty cool.
