Jacobs: Jim Tracy Stop Crying

One can only hope that somewhere down the line Damian Abraham will change his name to Roid Cheat Mota!

Tracy said it was the most gutless thing he has seen in 34 years in Baseball. Really Jimmy whiner! The worst?

Hmm that’s interesting Jimmy Whiner because many of us remember when you managed the LA Dodgers in 2003 and your relief pitcher hit Mets catcher Mike Piazza in the HEAD-On purpose, in Spring Training none the less.

Worst while Tracy whines about Jiminez, it was Tracy’s gutless relief pitcher and steroid cheat Guillermo Mota who hit Piazza in the Bean on purpose but what happened next added to the gutlessness of Roid cheat Mota!

After the blatent beaning Mota ran like a litle girl into the dugout of his Dodgers before any Met player could grab him. Ran like a 5 year old. Yet here was Tracy, crying like the girls mother saying what Jiminez did was the worst he had seen in all his years in the game. His guy got it on the elbow. Mota sought out someone’s head and let it fly and then ran off before he could be confronted by Piazza or any other Met.

So while we are innundated how Jiminez is this and that, and Tracy goes into his cry mode just remember it was Tracy who watched as gutless Mota hit and ran off 9 years ago in the same spring training. Now which was more gutless Jim Tracy?

Apparently, Jim Tracy has never looked in a mirror.

You hate to see a reasonable point wrapped up in this many metric tonnes of stupid.

A Statistical Analysis of this Blog Entry by: Guapo

Number of times the term "gutless" was used: 5
Number of times a comma was used: 5
Typographical errors: 7 (including "Jimenez")
Worst typographical error: Spelling the word "little" as "litle"
Worst sentence: "He nailed him in the elbow in the 1st inning of Sundays Spring Training Meaningless game."
Worst factual error: Mota did not, in fact, hit Piazza in the head.

Conclusion: We cannot definitively rule out the possibility that Bruce Jacobs ghostwrites Jack Keefe's posts.

"bruces-thought-of-the-day"

Dude only thinks once a day. If he's not sitting at his keyboard when it happens, this is what you get.

If he had been at a keyboard when yesterday's thought happened, his column would have been "I'm taking a poop and then going to Denny's."

What the hell is that?

If it didn't have the ESPN name at the top, I might have thought it was a 4th grader's blog. Seriously.

In my experience, you go to Denny's and THEN you poop.
