So a few days after I say “if Cano doesn’t hit, Alberto Gonzalez is gonna take his job”, the Yankees made a move…..They sent down Gonzalez and reactivated Wilson Betemit who had been on the DL.
Since I was dumb, I wanted to write about some other dumb things in sports:
-Red Sox Fans who yell at little kids wearing Yankees gear….sadly, it’s happened
-throwing a perfectly good hat on the ice when a player gets a hat-trick….my question is where do all those hats go?
-sticking with hockey….why throw a perfectly good squid onto the ice? (Detroit Red Wings fans…I’m talkin’ to you)
-QuestTech (baseball’s system that monitors umpires)- Seriously, let the umpires call the game without second guessing themselves
I would like to take this opportunity to nominate Ozzie Guillen for man of the year. His expletive- laced rant is something that writers dream about. If I read between the curses correctly, Guillen said that he is sick of being compared to the Cubs who haven’t won the World Series in a hundred years. God Bless a sports guy that isn’t afraid of being politically incorrect. Speaking of that…should I have even said “God Bless”? I’m waiting for an atheist to comment on my wall about it…. Either Hank Steinbrenner (who I will nominate soon) or Ozzie Guillen will win the Man of the Year award……You can count on that
