Also, just in general calling out a guy in this fashion is somewhat of a compliment. He's saying the guy is good enough to show even more.
Fair point, indeed. If he is going to use that method, however, I think he should keep it behind closed doors. It just looks odd to call out certain players to the media and not others.
Also, if Torts is coddling Richards, he needs some softer cradle rocks or something, because Brad is killing me.
