    Clearly a reference to tonight's Sox win in Detroit.

    @pgammo: Ortiz basically said what my greatgreatgreatgreat grandfather said at Ticonderoga

    So now I've learned that Peter Gammons is a direct descendant of Ethan Allen. And that Allen told the British he was taking Fort Ticonderoga "In the name of the Great Jehova and the Continental Congress."

    If Gammons was a *direct* descendant of Ethan Allen, wouldn't his last name be Allen?

    It long has been customary for a woman to take the last name of her husband upon marriage.

    As already noted, not necessarily, but he would still get the family discount on dinette sets, and coffee tables.

    That's unfortunate.  I remember reading that when he was angry with people, Lincoln used to write letters to them and then put them away never to send them.  It was a good way to get out the bile and calm down before addressing an issue he might have with someone.  Tweeters would do well to adopt a similar practice, because I'm sure Peter would take that one back if he could.

    And he's now apologizing.  Nice to see someone apologize without needing to get approval from handlers or saying "if I offended anyone"

    Lincoln didn't have Twitter.

    Also, this is the best Deadspin comment:

    His ass also immediately took to Twitter to apologize:

    Is that some sort of backhanded insult at people who use data for analysis rather than if someone looks the part?

    This is sad.  I have very fond memories of Gammons' Baseball columns in the Sunday Globe and how I couldn't wait to read them.  He's lost his fastball over the past few years and now is almost irrelevent.   Will always be a HOFer and rightly so.

    I like Peter Gammons. A lot. I really do. Though he desperately needs an editor, I check his site every day and still read his pieces. But this one, forget the title, is a little over-the-top, especially with this line:
     
     
     
    Yes. Clayton Kershaw is EXACTLY like Nelson Mandela. Who can forget the years that Kershaw was unfairly jailed because of the conviction of his beliefs. I get that it's Gammons' schtick to write that just because some dude can throw 95-100 mph, he's one of the truly greatest people who ever lived, but come on? Kershaw as Mandela? That's a fridge too far, Gammy.

    Peter once wrote that Theo was destined for the United States Senate and maybe higher political office.

    This stuff does not translate to other spheres, and wanting to talk about "larger" things, gammo has not accommodated himself to that reality.

    Comparing Kershaw to Nelson Mandela is outrageously offensive and stupid.
     
    Everyone knows that the correct comparison is to the Dalai Lama.

    Really, the Lama?  Kershaw's got a career .338 OPS at the plate, not sure it's apt to compare him to a big hitter like the Lama...

    Good god man, a bit of perspective. Kershaw is a Desmond Tutu at best.
