I have never heard of Will Carroll before, that guy must not be able to tell stories.

This isn't usually his racket, his thing is asking his dad how ACLs work and passing himself of as an injury expert.

La Russa's cerebral, academic approach to the game doesn't always yield the right answers, but you're always left with the idea that he's asking the right questions.

Is this snark? Because if its not let me just say as a counterpoint, "gently caress Skip Bayless."

You are not very familiar with Carles, are you?

Also, editorial is obviously making him use proper grammar and I don't really think it works with his character.

I still contend that Bayless is pretty funny when you realize it's intentional trolling. I don't know who in SAS goes to loving First Take for serious, well thought-out sports discussion, so I think it's hilarious that his schtick works up so many sports-radio listeners.
