George Ofman Doesn’t Like When You Draw Negative Conclusions About Him Based On Small Sample Sizes of His Work

Yesterday, George Ofman wrote a post about Alfonso Soriano. I don't have time to fisk the whole thing, and to be honest, I don't really even want to. Soriano has moved on back to New York far away from the meatball lunatics that would boo him based on George's writings, so whatever.
