TP (DC): Is Matt Chico mortal?
Jonah Keri: (2:53 PM ET ) He's a robot in disguise.
Thanks ESPN, for replacing inferior dork Keith Law with new baseball dork 2.0 Jonah Keri. I thank the readers of the Matt Chico-sphere for the public pressure applied on ESPN to dump the traitor and install the new guy. Very brave of you, our loyal readership.
Though I appreciate Keri's recognition of Matt Chico as a superhuman being (life force, possibly), I think he might have missed the mark. I think of Matt Chico as more magic than machine in a way, for instance, when he finished Book 7 by slaying archenemy Cody Ross with a spell backfire caused by Elder Wand Allegiance and impact with Harry Potter's opposing Expelliarmus spell. Yeah, no big deal.
P.S. Jim Bowden, trade Dmitri Young before the market for Communist diabetic sloths dries up.
