Is Lou Merloni homophobic? I’m just asking the question, caller.

You may remember Lou from your little league baseball trip to McCoy Stadium. Now he is the co-host of a radio show on WEEI, which you also may know from actively avoiding it.

Lou’s shtick is that he gets really angry about the local baseball team. Last night, Lou tweeted out the above to show how upset he was about one of the pitchers on the team. “Gay Chris friggan Sale.” Some might find that problematic, but it’s all good, though. Lou says it was just autocorrect.

So let’s do a little experiment. As you can see above, Lou tweeted this with an iPhone. Luckily I’m also typing this on an iPhone, so this just might work. I will now type out many variations of “that,” which is the word Lou was claiming to be using, and let’s see if I get “gay” to be autocorrected in.

Here we go:

That that ghat that that that that ghat ggat that that that that Just khan that that what what gate that bust uhat that that that they hurt that chat that phat ghat gray gsat fury that what shat that Catt baby that uhat garb gate ghut Hawthorne that bust Bhagwan must Khartoum that that’s what host chat chat shag what that baby uhat just that that that what shat that must mhar last last what that uhat phat what last that chat chat chat hgat jhzat had that that ghat what that

It seems odd that Lou got it on the first try. The only way I can get autocorrect to come out as “gay” is when I try to type “gay.” I’m at a loss for words here because I want to believe Lou. I went searching for theories and I found this one:

So is Lou Merloni tossing around the word “gay” so often that his autocorrect is trained to use it as a go to replacement? Or did he actually mean to call Chris Sale “gay” because he didn’t perform up to his expectations last night?

Either way, it’s a bad look.

Gordon Hayward’s wife had this to say after Big Gym decided to attack her for no reason on the air today. It’s a perfect nickname.

The Globe thinks you will like the Red Sox more if they embarrass Bob Kraft

The Patriots have been one of the most successful sports franchises in American history and nobody is more upset about it than John Henry. For years, we’ve seen the Globe attack the Patriots for the simple reason that they have been more successful than the Red Sox. Henry and his wife, Linda Pizzuti, will stop at nothing in order to win the PR battle with Bob Kraft and the New England Patriots.

Whether it’s attacking Brady’s charitable interests, having media members like Minihane and Drellich chased off the airwaves for alleged negative coverage, telling you how woke you would be if you stopped supporting the Pats, writing columns about how “arrogant” the local football franchise is, and countless other moves in a chess match that the Patriots don’t even know they are playing in.

What is the Globe trying to accomplish here? Other media outlets have already filed the same motion. The video is either going to be released or it isn’t. I highly doubt the Globe is going to post pornographic content on their website. It sure seems like they are just exhausting every option at their disposal to continue their one-sided battle with the Patriots. It’s pretty clear the main objective is to simply embarrass Bob Kraft here, in the most shameful way imaginable.

I, for one, hope that Kraft stops turning the other cheek in situations like this. We will see on Tuesday for the Red Sox home opener.

Chad Finn is having a meltdown because BJBSJ had it first (again)

Wow, great reporting, Chad. The Globe’s media columnist tweeted this out a few minutes ago. A huge scoop about one of the most noteworthy mediots in Boston.

But wait… that looks familiar, doesn’t it?

That’s because Ironhead of BJBSJournal reported the same thing almost two weeks ago.:

Lies, Lies, More Lies, and Videotape: Is Tomase On The Move?

Chad is well aware of BJBSJ, as he has searched out and blocked almost every member on twitter, including the main account @BJBSJournal. You would think somebody who has the title “Media Columnist” at the Boston Globe would want to keep track of BJBSJ since we are doing his job better than he is.

Well, apparently Chad doesn’t care much about his job at the Globe. His main concern seems to be protecting his fragile ego. (When he’s not busy being a mouthpiece for The Baseball Paper and 98.5 The Sports Hub.) According to some Twitter users, Chad is blocking people for merely mentioning that we exist. You almost have to feel bad for the guy.

We move on to the next round with the final four mediots remaining. The four #1 seeds. Some might say the BJBSJ selection committee is batting 1.000. There were some tough battles along the way, but in the end these are the four faces on the Mount Rushmore of douchebags in the Boston media. Vote below.
