In this business of sports writing, Joe Posnanski is as good as they come, and so his column on the Jim Joyce fiasco is of course highly recommended.
…when my young daughters ask, “Why didn’t he get mad and scream about how he was robbed,” I think I will tell them this: I don’t know for sure, but I think it’s because Armando Galarraga understands something that is very hard to understand, something we all struggle with, something I hope you learn as you grow older: In the end, nobody’s perfect. We just do the best we can.
Also highly recommended: The audio of Joyce speaking to the media after last night’s game. It’s six minutes and 14 seconds of unhinged frustration, disappointment and disbelief.
