So far from the team. If he's fired it's because of sponsorship pressure, etc. which will come later.

He's full of shit btw. He blamed Time magazine, basically saying they misrepresented his answer. The question was "who do you admire" and he started talking about Fidel Castro. How does that occur accidentally? How is that translated into a way that is ok?

Schilling "I don't want to read too much into one start but he's only a five inning pitcher". "I didn't see any of the game but i didn't like how he pitched". Dumbass.

Yeah. He went off for five minutes. Kept saying "i didn't see him pitch and i don't want to make judgments on 1 start BUT he's horrible and will be a total failure". Kept saying Matsuzka, there are not similar in approach or personality at all.

So the Marlins fire Joe Girardi after he wins manager of the year, because he does not see eye to eye with the team, but Ozzie Guillen offends the entire city and keeps his job?

Except he didn't offend the entire city, everyone has been pretty split on the issue. It was just a terrible attempt at some sort of joke that the media decided to run away with and get people riled up. I seriously doubt this is going to be much of an issue as the season goes on, he definitely will not be fired over it.

Sucks though, the team has started to put things together and now Ozzie has to sit out for a week.

On another note, Buehrle blamed his bad inning in his first start on slicing his thumb on his pitching hand by opening a jar of mayonnaise.

They do the same thing with Nellie Cruz.

Also, the dude got a massive ovation when he was finally taken out of the game.



Just saw that the kid in the gif is the same one in this gif

He's been KILLING the Rays today.

Maddon left Moore in there one batter too long and it cost em big time.


Competitive game, though. It'll be one of those games that comes down to which team makes the bigger mistake.

Go Rays!

Reds sign Brandon Phillips to six-year contract extention

http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/77...ct-sources-say

Absolutely shocked. Perhaps a year or so too long, but I LOVE the commitment shown by the front office. They are DESPERATE to bring a winner to Cincinnati. The core of Bruce/Votto/Phillips will now be around for a LONG time, and it's up to the fans to respond. 16k in the stands last night for a game against a division rival is NOT good enough.
