Who cares if Roy Halladay wouldn’t talk to reporters?

When you have four legitimate number one starters on your team and you’re coming off two pennants in the last three years, it’s hard to find something to complain about. But via Crossing Broad, we learn that Howard Eskin found something. Roy Halladay allegedly won’t talk to the media:

And because of my track record I fully acknowledge that some of you may assume I’m somehow agreeing with Eskin’s criticism. Believe me: I am not. This is beyond lame. Halladay is under no obligation to talk to anyone. Indeed, I think the criticism is factually wrong as well, because I recall him giving an interview or two, maybe in late November or early December.

The media plays an important role in fans’ consumption of sports. But we’re not entitled to anything, and Eskin’s complaining here is really, really weak sauce.
