The Ultimate Writer Goof

Check out the opening paragraph of this article:

Jason Varitek [stats, news], Nomar Garciaparra, Jay Payton. Any guesses which of these former Georgia Tech Bulldogs was considered the biggest rising star, the so-called can't-miss-superstar headed to the major leagues?

However, this was not just a one-time goof. This later:

In 1994, when the Bulldogs appeared in the College World Series, Payton had everyone drooling with his .467 batting average. He hit 20 homers and led the nation with 102 RBI in 67 games.

This right from the Boston Herald. Wow.
