Quick entirely off-topic Rant

Stuart Scott is painfully stupid.

The man is paid only to describe highlights on ESPN's SportsCenter. His entire "talent" is in these clever descriptions.

Thus, one of the fundamental features of his job is to learn how to pronounce names that he's unfamiliar with.

Luckily, he lives in an age when we have this here Internet thingy, so looking up the correct pronunciation of an unfamiliar name (Goethe, for instance--don't get me started) should be pretty easy. Moreover, I suspect that the giant sports network has one or two employees whose job is to check things like pronunciation.

Spokane is just not that difficult, folks. It's spo-kann, not spo-cain. Good Lord.

Rant over. Back to following Spring Training. Boo-yah.
