Camden Chat: Showalter Suspended Three Games For Maddon Comments

The Buck starts here:

“There’s a right way to approach this game—a tradition that honors it and respects it,” he allegedly told Kubatko. “And Roch, you know as well as I do . . . Joe, he kinda likes to flout that tradition . . . He’s a style guy, and he likes to act the fool. He kind of comes off as an [expletive] in person. I’m not a style guy, I’m a [expletive] hustle guy. You remember the whole hoodie thing with MLB last year? It’s [nonsense] stuff like that.”

Never mind.

“There’s a right way to approach this game—a tradition that honors it and respects it,”

Isn't the honorable thing to not take pot shots at other guys in the press?

At least this one was better than the one with the separate HoF ballots for roiders. And the Grumpy Old Man scowl on Showalter's face kind of lends a nice complement to the effort.

Reached for comment, Showalter was unapologetic, making further remarks about Maddon ("Who does he think he is with those glasses? Ghandi? He's fooling himself."), Toronto Blue Jays' GM Alex Anthopolous ("a snot-nosed kid"), and ex-Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston ("He's a fatass. And he still sucks."). He concluded by remarking, "It's just the first day of April here. We've got a long season in front of us, and the O's aren't going to put up with crap from anyone this year."

This is just a piss poor attempt at an April Fool's Day joke, right?

Uh, yeah.

I thought I'd tagged this with Orioles & Fantasy for the non-RTFA contingent. The Last paragraph (in the article) is the payoff.

Not sure if Neyer bought it, or is playing along. A commenter bought it, anyway...
   8. JEe (Jason) Posted: April 01, 2011 at 02:50 PM (#3783123)
Neyer may have bought it.

Hook, line, and sinker. He must not have consumed any caffeine this morning.

EDIT: @9 If so, he wasn't trying very hard.
   9. DKDC Posted: April 01, 2011 at 02:53 PM (#3783125)
I'm pretty sure Neyer is just playing along.

I know this is a joke, but it's believable because Showalter really is a turdface. 147 pitches? what a dumbfuck
   11. Infinite Yost (Voxter) Posted: April 01, 2011 at 06:04 PM (#3783296)
Showalter's status as one of my least-favorite baseball blowhards resulted in my taking this seriously for a few minutes.
