David Ortiz tweets his happiness about the Deflategate decision

Look, Deflategate posts are gold, man. And I’m sitting in baseball land over here, like a sucker, with virtually no way to get in on that haul. It’s hard!

I thought that maybe I could, once again, note just how horribly and consistently wrong ESPN’s legal “expert” Lester Munson is about all things upon which he is called to opine, but that’s beating a dead horse at this point, yes?

Thank God, then, for David Ortiz, who has given me an excuse to use the word “Deflategate” in a headline on a blog post on the world wide web:

That word’s very presence will likely make this the most trafficked post I do all day. We can talk about whether that, or the world for that matter, is fair, but in the end, isn’t web traffic what it’s really all about?
