Is this the best the Darwinist All-Stars can offer?

Renowned Darwinist Sean Carroll is by all counts part of the Darwinist All-Stars. He made a lame attempt to refute Behe’s recent book in a review published by the prestigious journal Science.
pyrimethamine resistance in malarial parasites (6)Ã¢â‚¬â€œa notable omission given Behe’s extensive discussion of malarial drug resistance
Carroll argues Behe omitted mention of pyrimethamine resistance! But what did Mike actually write? He did not omit mention of pyrimethamine resistance:
One successor drug is called pyrimethamine. Interestingly, malaria can counter it with a single amino acid substitution. That single amino acid change makes malaria one hundred times more resistant to the drug.
Is Carroll’s fabrication the best the Darwinist All-Stars can offer? Mike Behe has written the editors of Science regarding Carroll’s mistake, along with other mistakes. I look forward to Mike answering his Critics, and this is just a taste of things to come.
[update: per the wonderful suggestion of Bill, I changed the word varsity to All-Stars
