Can’t make this stuff up, continued: ESPN’s website last week, in a lead paragraph, gave ESPN full credit for breaking the story that the Yankees have extended Cliff Lee an extra seventh year on their offer. In the third paragraph, this appeared: “SI.com first reported that the Yankees added a seventh year to their offer.”
In a sense, at least the Worldwide Leader bothered to give another outlet credit instead of just stealing it outright. Given the focus on the story – and the importance of SI.com – they probably couldn’t get away with snagging the credit for themselves. On the other hand, ESPN seems to get worse and worse as they gain more power. Maybe that book will change something?
