Mann: ‘Hockey stick did not suddenly appear out of left field’

Irony intended?

The Guardian presents an edited abstract from “Mann Kampf”:

… To employ a mixed sports metaphor, the hockey stick did not suddenly appear out of left field. Rather, it arose as a logical consequence of decades of work by paleoclimate researchers that led to increasingly rich networks of climate proxy data, and the introduction of new ways to use such data to reconstruct past climates.
