    we had a discussion over in this thread about the relative merits of the local baseball experts

    https://torontosportsmedia.com/sports-and-toronto/toronto-sports-media-sports-radio-lineups-53/12195

    I have always been a Shulman fan, but his latest spot with Cybulski was pretty disappointing. I’m not sure if i blame Shulman or the interviewers, but it was a very soft interview:
    .

    1. Shulman extolled the virtues of Valentine’s IQ and what a great manager he is. At no point did anyone ask the obvious question: why has this guy been out of MLB for 9 years, despite being in the running for tons of managerial jobs?

    2. Both Beckett and Crawford had heated exchanges with Valentine last year while he was with ESPN as a result of things Valentine said about them on the air. How is a guy going to function as a manager when he’s already alienated some the the team’s stars. Shulman was allowed to paint a completely one-sided picture of his friend. It’s the interviewer’s job to counter-balance that.

    3. Shulman was asked about ESPN’s role in the Syracuse cover-up. This was a dumb question since he’s a broadcaster not a journalist. But at some point he said that when you can’t find a corroborating witness “reporting a story that may be false is just as bad as not reporting a story that may be true.” I’m pretty sure that the parents of children who were molested during the 7 years that ESPN sat on the tape would disagree.

    Mike (in Boston), you seem to have an awful lot of opinions but all of them are so negative, and most appear to be of the knee-jerk variety. I’ve been reading your comments for a long time on this site, and all I can say is, deal with the fact that you are not doing the interviewing, and whoever is doesn’t ask the same questions you would.
    As for Shulman’s answer to the ESPN question, think of it this way. What if I accused you of child molestation ( just to be clear, I’m not). And there was no other evidence to back up my claim. You wouldn’t expect me to accuse you of such an heinous crime without absolutely knowing you were guilty. It’s all fine and good to say now that ESPN should have run with the story. It appears to me that they tried to get credible corroborating evidence, but were unable to. This is not the kind of accusation you can just throw around recklessly. A man’s career was at stake. Don’t get me wrong; if Fine is guilty, throw him in jail and lose the key. But he’s not guilty yet. That’s how the system works. By the way, I think it’s a cheap shot that you would bring up parents of abused kids to make your point. The implication is, ESPN, or anyone who disagrees with your view, is just as guilty as the molester. I don’t know anyone anywhere who doesn’t sympathize with abuse victims. That comment was offensive.
    As for ESPN, read Richard Deitsch’s interview with ESPN reporter Mark Schwarz. You may disagree with what he says, but maybe then you would understand ESPN’s position. They are getting heat for not giving the tape to authorities, but the interview makes it clear why they didn’t. And it’s also clear that this thing has been eating away at Schwarz for the entire time.Journalism, even in sports, is loaded with issues like this one. There are all kinds of stories that deal with moral and legal issues, and you have to think long and hard about what to do and why. Try it. There are some of us who would welcome the lack of drivel.
