Common Mistake: Identifying Andrew McCutchen as Lawrence McCutcheon

Howard Eskin vs. technology is one of Philadelphia’s all-time biggest rivalries.

The King is down in Clearwater for Phillies Spring Training, asking the hard questions that other nitwits and dopes don’t have the guts to ask.

Sometimes he has trouble navigating Twitter, however, such as the instance last week where he ripped the wrong Jessica Mendoza twice, before correcting himself. Today, he made the common mistake of confusing Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen for Los Angeles Rams running back Lawrence McCutcheon, who last played in 1981:


Honest mistake.

Nobody is perfect.

I’m sure every single one of us has erroneously misidentified Andrew McCutchen as Lawrence McCutcheon at some point in our lifetime.


Now we’ve got the Phillies dragging Howard –

  1. The Eskin hate is weird. Reeks of jealousy to be honest. Sure, he’s not perfect but the guy works harder than just about every sports media personality in this city other than maybe John Clarke. Funny thing is, he doesn’t even have to work hard at this point in his life. He’s got plenty of money in the bank. The only guy that shows up to every game. He asks tough questions. Questions that many are afraid to ask but the questions that everyone wants asked. Hard not to respect the guy on work ethic alone. Then again, most the people who make fun of him are jealous liberal dweebs who expect hand outs, so it all makes sense. Not to mention the numerous charitable causes he works with as well as the many generous donations he’s made.

    1. incorrect

      Howard doesn’t even stay for the games. He shows up to pregame media, then goes home. It’s just about being seen and trying to stay relevant.

      1. He’s not a big fan of the blogs so I can understand why he’s not your favorite but like it or not, he is one of the pioneers that made sports talk, radio, newspaper or internet, so popular.

    2. The only question I have is why is he down at spring training if he is only on the radio a few hours a week says:

      You have several beat writers that are more than willing to call the radio station from Clearwater. Why does he feel it’s necessary when if he could he would have that Arthur from the joint on the phone for 1/2 hour every Saturday for a two hour show.

    3. Holy shit Gerald Busse that was a pathetic comment. Go home, take a shower, and wash the shame off yourself.

    4. I kind of agree …he’s a bit over the top but that seems like more schtick than anything ….usually provides good insight

  2. This really isn’t a big deal, that’s true. HOWEVER, when Eskin had his radio show, he’d be the first guy to tear someone to shreds if they mistakenly said Jim Harbaugh when they meant John, or Peyton when they meant Eli, so i have no problem with him getting a little ridicule for this

  3. He also wearing several gold chains including one with a giant crown encrusted with diamonds to signify he is the King.

    1. I wonder when Pete didn’t bet on the Reds could it be shown that it yielded a profit against the moneyline. Pete was a losing bettor but I would love to know if his strategy worked. Pete’s problem was he has no clue on understanding if he had an edge or not. He just wanted to be in action.
