Erik Kuselias on Cold Pizza

In the span of three minutes, these gems came from the mouth of Kuselias, who is filling in for the awful Skip Bayless.

On the Yankees five game sweep at Fenway this weekend:
"Well when we (I'm assuming "we" refers to the Red Sox, and that Kuselias believes he was a member of that squad) beat the Yankees four straight, that mattered. That was the championship."

The guy's reaction to a legitimite question as to whether the Yankees just ended the post season dreams of the Red Sox is a "we beat the Yankees two years ago" argument. Fascinating.

On the NL Wild Card:
"The Padres will not win the wildcard. It will be the Reds."

Fair enough. The Reds are playing well, currently have the wildcard lead, and have a good team. I'm sure you have a rational explanation for why you believe as you do, and offer some evidence.

"The Padres are a flat team and they play in a flat city. Cincinatti is a Baseball Town™.. there is no way the city of Cincinatti doesn't push their team over the top."

Now I am not 100% sure what constitutes a Baseball Town™ or why Cincinatti wasn't a Baseball Town™ in 2005 when the Padres won the NL West and the Reds did not qualify for the post season or in 1998 when the Padres went to the World Series while the Reds watched from home. It is possible the city did not wish to push the team "over the top" during those seasons.

Also I am not sure what a "Flat City™" is either, but one can only assume is is the direct opposite of a Baseball Town™.

ESPN is just about useless these days. I pass thru but I end up turning away before some of the super stupid hosts like John Kruk and Joe Morgan can drive me insane.
