I don't think this is too farfetched. I can believe that she knows more about baseball than she lets on, and she's being held back by her bosses in that regard. in fact, I'd actually *like* to believe that.
So would I. In fact I do believe it. All reports show that she was a long time BoSox fan and could probably talk baseball with anyone. This routine she has been thrust into is disgusting. But the onus on her to demand a better gig, so I will continue to complain about the weakness of her reports. She is to MASN what Barbara Harrison is to Channel 4 news.
