To/Too/Two Tuesday: No, silly baseball writer, "birth" is not the same as "berth."


Well, I'm really glad to see that Dunn has never had a postseason birth.  That would be really distracting on the field, wouldn't it?  Then again, if the White Sox are playing the Twins...I'm all about that distraction (maybe it'll make the ChiSox lose their focus, which in turn could help the Twins win).  I'm assuming fellow Twins fan KIRSTEN, who sent me this error, agrees with that sentiment!

How in the hell does something like that make it past a decent editor? hahaha

Maybe that publication simply doesn't have a decent editor. (Always a possibility, especially since there are frequently layoffs and cutbacks in the media industry.)

Purdy sad...I'd expect that out of Yahoo!, but not the LA Times.
