Jess Mendoza Is Insufferable And Only Had Her Job Because She Fills In Two Diversity Checkboxes

Baseball is easily the most boring sport of the four major sports to watch right now. But the one thing they do better than any other league is their All-Star weekend. It’s the only game that actually somewhat resembles the same kind of sport they play in games that actually matter. And the Home Run Derby is better than any skills exhibition in hockey or basketball. Unfortunately last night Chris Berman did not do the commentary for the derby, and was replaced by Jess Mendoza – a professional SJW who just so happens to be the least talented sports analyst of all time.
Look, Chris Berman is a two trick pony. He does the back-back-back thing for the home run derby and he does highlights on Sunday night during NFL season. But he does them both well. I don’t like watching a home run derby without back-back-back. He also occasionally provided some insight, and could at least give viewers random factoids about ghosts of home run derby past.
Not Jess Mendoza though. That’s because Jess Mendoza doesn’t have her job at ESPN because she’s talented or has any clue what she’s talking about. She has her job because 1) Curt Schilling’s politics don’t align with ESPN’s, and 2) she checks off two diversity checkboxes. So they fired him and hired her. And listening to her speak ruins every sports event she’s ever appeared on. Last night was no exception:
For anyone who didn't like Chris Berman well you got your wish… Jessica Mendoza 😰 #HomeRunDerby

She's been historically awful tonight. The whole broadcast is terrible. Amateur hour. https://t.co/6BUtZjePLz

Mendoza: "These long fly balls take a long time to come down." Brilliant analysis.

Jess Mendoza asking a hundred questions no one is answering and screaming over the fans is really annoying #HomeRunDerby

Jess Mendoza sounds like a freshman college girl gawking over the Senior athletes her first day on campus

Jess Mendoza is really adding a lot to this.

"OH MY GOD!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS?!!!" – Jess Mendoza for the next three hours.

If Jess Mendoza says "oh my goodness!" One more time I'm shutting my tv off.

Naturally she’s hiding behind the “girl power” card:
In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, Mendoza speaks about the criticism she routinely receives. As the first ever female MLB color analyst, she explains her desire to serve as a standard-bearer for young women in sports.
“I really believe that’s why I need to be in this position, because … if I were to talk to a young girl right now that’s like, ‘You’re doing this to hopefully create an opportunity for me to be in this position,’ I would tell her, ‘I’m doing everything I can. I am going to fight for you, I’m going to work my butt off for you.’ I want these girls to know that I’m never going to take this for granted,” she says.
God I hate this. Look, Turtleboy is a family feminist blog. Everyone knows that. We love women, and we want to see women get a fair opportunity in all aspects of life. But it would be GREAT if the women they kept throwing at us weren’t the most God-awful succubuses walking the earth today.
Seriously, Hillary Clinton, Liz Warren, Sarah Palin, Jemele Hill, Erin Andrews – why do these have to be the women who “break barriers?” There’s more than 3 billion people walking this earth that don’t have a spam javelin between their legs. Surely this is not the best the female gender has to offer.
We’re talking about a simple minded SJW, who of course believed Adam Jones’ lie about hearing a racial taunt at Fenway because of the “current political climate from the last election.” This is a woman who goes on Chelsea Handler for girl talk:
This is not someone who has her job because she’s good at it. She has her job because she’s a woman. That’s it.
This is why I didn’t want Hillary to be the “first female President.” Because my daughters should have a better woman to look up to than Hillary Clinton. And little girls who want to get into sports broadcasting should be able to look up to someone who is good at their job, instead of some airhead who got her job because her last name sounds ethnic and she’s easy on the eyes.
Like I said, I’m all for more women in everything. And that’s the fucked up part about seeing people like Jess Mendoza get ahead in life. They’re not the most qualified women out there. Linda Cohn is capable. Jackie McCollum is capable. Pam Cross is capable. Nikki Haley is capable. These are the women who could be in the spotlight instead of morons like Sarah Palin, Liz Warren, and Jess Mendoza.
