About Brien Jackson

Born in Southwestern Ohio and currently residing on the Chesapeake Bay, Brien is a former editor-in-chief of IIATMS who now spends most of his time sitting on his deck watching his tomatoes ripen and consuming far more MLB Network programming than is safe for one's health or sanity.

  1. Brien, don't you wish you could have 5 minutes of Sherman's or Lupica's time to ask them how they are able to to read the inner consciousness of players? I would pay to view that exchange.

    B.J. Joel, tell me how do you know Zack Greinke will fail in New York.
    J.S. Well Brien, clearly he can't handle the pressure. You saw his terrible outing for the Brewers against Yankees. That's more than enough sample size to prove that his mental make-up is not New York compatible!
    B.J. You sir are an idiot!
    J.S. Ad hominem! You lose sir!. I'm calling Murray Chass to tell him you were mean to me.

  2. This is great. These kinds of things are written all the time, and I appreciate that they get their due evisceration here.

  3. Wow – so, thanks to that well-researched and thought out article, I now know that Nick's upcoming season will either be better or worse than his norm.

    Good thing I have Hardball bookmarked.
