Charlie Manuel frequently makes poor strategic decisions. The 11-million dollar scoreboard in left field would probably do a similar job. We guarantee a post analyzing Manuel's decisions for every Phillies game. Please click on our aliases below to email us.

ESPN is confused

Current headline on ESPN's website: "Irish nab Kelly"

Unless they are trying to use as few characters as possible to break a news story, it's evident that ESPN doesn't care about its headlines.

"nab [næb]
vb nabs, nabbing, nabbed (tr) Informal
1. to arrest
2. to catch (someone) in wrongdoing
3. to seize suddenly; snatch
[perhaps of Scandinavian origin; compare Danish nappe, Swedish nappa to snatch. See kidnap]"

Notre Dame did not arrest Brian Kelly, catch him in wrong-doing, or seize him suddenly. It was evident a few days ago who they would hire. His name was in headlines before Planet Cholesterol was dismissed. ESPN is either lazy or confused, but since I'm a nice guy I'll claim the latter.
