As in, give them a break.
Yesterday’s Pardon the Interruption featured segments on two Jewish sports figures: Josh Rosen, who will be a high pick in the upcoming NFL draft, and Phillies skipper Gabe Kapler.
The segment on Rosen led off the program as co-hosts Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon opined on whether the former UCLA passer is “too cocky” and the knock on athletes coming from well-to-do families being tough enough to compete on a professional level. (Can’t help thinking that some of this complaining about Rosen’s attitude has at least a little something to do with his Judaism, but that might just be my paranoia).
A few minutes later, the conversation turned to whether Philadelphia fans and media were being too hard on the unorthodox (not being used in the religious meaning here) rookie manager, who likes to use analytics in making his decisions.
