ESPN's Rob Parker, the man who makes Skip Bayless look like a professional sports analyst, has gained infamy across the internet for his comments attacking intelligence and individuals who prefer advanced statistical metrics to understand baseball. Why a man who went to Columbia hates learning new things is beyond me, but nevertheless, this jockular wagon that makes him look like a fifth grade bully is the one Parker has hitched himself to.
Parker went on a Twitter tirade thumping his chest over Miguel Cabrera winning the MVP over Mike Trout, basically proving everything that's wrong with this old school vs new school debate. In managing to offend those of us who like to use our brains for something more than a weight on the top of our necks, he also mocked followers with the hilariously clever hashtag #wattimeisurshow.
Just remember as you read these tweets that ESPN sees something in this guy to continually put him on the air to talk about sports and inform viewers. This is a guy who used to be an actual honest to goodness sportswriter. Like, in a real newspaper...no comments
