Tomorrow night, I will be doing three things: Cheering on the Rays Hoping the Patriots lose on Thursday Night Football Wondering how Neal Huntington still has his job I wrote about that last one a week ago, following a game where I watched the Rays — featuring Charlie Morton, Tyler Glasnow, and Austin Meadows — […]
For anyone who has ever worked in any kind of professional setting, we all have seen it—an employee who is in way over their head. At one point or another, this employee was competent at their job, but that competence was rewarded with a new challenge that they ultimately just weren’t cut out for. This […]
