Peter Gammons=1973 Willie Mays?

What happened to Peter Gammons? I used to love his objective analysis over at ESPN. He was even favorable to my beloved St. Louis Cardinals.

But now he takes a strange shot at Massachusetts state Senator and U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown (R), comparing JFK to the legendary shortstop Omar Vizquel and Brown to Royals shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt. My question is: Are Gammons’s greatest days behind him? I hope not.

That comparison is just strange: Brown is making a comeback, and AG Martha Coakley (D) would be more like Adam Dunn: a good power hitter who also strikes out (on some big cases).

Maybe Sen. Brown isn’t the bronze warrior from Brookline. But really, Mr. Gammons. If you want to make an analogy, do better than that.
