It's rare to see a sports media company go after another so directly.
In a post that has since been deleted, Fox Sports used the headline, "Mike North: Jessica Mendoza is the worst announcer in baseball" to discuss ESPN's MLB commentator. To see the cached version, click here.
"Jessica Mendoza is the worst baseball announcer who has ever announced the game of baseball," Mike North says. "Now if you want to call me sexist go ahead, but I'm an observer and I've been observing and listening to baseball announcer for 20, 30, 40, 50 years."
Whether you agree with North or not, you have to admit that naming all the females he likes before mentioning one you don't raises more eyebrows than if he would've given his opinion straight up.
