    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    Bill James appeared on ESPN Radio to add to his previous comments: http://hardballtalk....aterno-defense/ Given the cover-up by the archdiocese and child sex abuse by a former club house manager, I am shocked as well as disgusted by his comments. Is he playing the super-contrarian out of some...
