You know that Fox was reaching for stories in the World Series when they actually did a closeup of Darren Baker crying in the bullpen. Hey Fox, the ANGELS just won the World Series, how about more coverage of them and not the kids in the dugout.
The ESPN Sports Reporters guy (Albom I think) had a great point about how the spitting alone (along with the cursing) should have discouraged Dusty from turning the dugout into a preschool class.
I love that they booed Selig.

The only time Selig looks out of place is when he's doing something regarding baseball. Wouldn't Eucker make a better commissioner? Or Joe Morgan? Costas? Zimmer? Tony Danza? The shirtless guy from those Diet Coke ads a few years ago? John Waters?
Originally posted by PeterStorkThey have to let Darren Baker in the dugout, though, or he won't grow up to be a conceited assclown like Barry Bonds.
That's such bullshit. Barry has basically been a class act throughout his career. He's a quiet guy and doesn't like to talk to the media when he loses. What's wrong with that?
During the home run chase last year I don't know how many times I heard him say, "It doesn't matter. We lost," when asked about his homers after a losing game.
Personally, I think that's way cooler than a guy like Emmitt Smith, who takes away from his team to get a rushing record. For the last two years, Emmitt has been quoted numerous times saying things that implied that the record was more important to him than his team.
STILL, Emmitt is this classy hero and Barry is a "conceited ass clown." I don't get it.

Bonds is a concieted assclown for a number of reasons. He has a corner of the clubhouse, not the corner locker, and ENTIRE CORNER. No other players are allowed in there. He has a huge leather recliner and a big screen TV. WOnt eat with the rest of the TEAM, wont use TEAM doctors or TEAM message therapists. He was an arrogant asshole in Pittsburg, why do you think they never made any serious offer to keep him?
Plus, when they had him at the All Star game in Fenway and asked what his thought about all star games were, he said he loved them, because that was the closest he could get to a World Series. No Barry, the closest you could get was when you choked TWO YEARS RUNNING in the playoffs, and let your team down.
THats why people think he is an assclown. Plus the fact that he likes to stand on top of the plate, and gets upset if anybody throws inside. Take off the Kevlar elboq pad and hop on up Barry. Stop trying to claim that part of the plate, and crying when a pitcher wants it back.
Not to mention how he just HAS to stand and walk R e a l l y Frieking S l o w every time he hits a homer, until he is 15-20 feet up the line, watching the ball, showing up the other team.
Because MLB cowers down to the networks who want games in Prime Time. I'm all for making a buck, but MLB should have enough clout to say, "No, one game will start at 4:30, the other at 7:40 and that's that.
