The Enigma in Center

Ross, a poster at Bleed Cubbie Blue, composed an appropriate faux news item last week about Corey Patterson. According to the blurb, Corey was named the Cubs official whipping boy after the departure of LaTroy Hawkins to the Giants.

Interviews like the real one Corey gave to the Daily Herald today will only make sure that this happens!

The headline reads "Patterson Sees Himself as Offensively Versatile". Corey's ego is as big as his talent, but only one of them has reached its full potential. If I were Chuck at Ivy Chat, I'd say it would be easy to switch the adverb and adjective in the headline and it would then be more accurate. But Ross's news item was only a joke, wasn't it?
