Slusser breaks the mold

Susan Slusser does a nice job responding to my point from yesterday in writing about Jay Payton in today's SF Chronicle. She talks about he worked hard at his studies in high school, finishing top four in his class, and in college and how he worked very hard to come back from multiple elbow surgeries before his career even really got started. In other words, no, Jay Payton isn't just coasting along on some natural athletic ability.

Also, as an aside, Payton actually has the same first two names as me: Jason Lee. Who knew?
