Do All Baseball Talking Heads Speak With Split Tongues?

Postby SouthBronxBombers » Mon Jun 13, 2005 10:07 am

I think Frank Robinson is doing a good job with the Nationals, and I am glad the baseball pundits are actually talking about it. But it is so laughably hypocritical to see the same guys doing it now who last year were laughing at him and talking about how horrible a manager he is and how the game has passed him by when the cameras caught him sleeping on the bench. It would be nice if they were not all such front runners.

Its hard to be a good manager when 5 people come to your games..curse at you in french and you play in a dome where the weather is -50 c...

Frank is a good manager and I think the Nats can win the NL east

Would you expect anything from these "experts"? I wish someone would take them to task on stuff like this, but unfortunately it would have to be someone else in the media and they will probably never do that. :-/

This is the same guy that lets Livan throw 150 pitches. He may not be the worst manager around for sure, but I hardly think he is any great shakes either.

And as to the hypocritcal talking heads, in fairness they are no different than many of the so called experts posting around here on this board that will change their mind and their tune like the wind. Only difference is that the talking heads get paid big bucks to supposedly know what they are talking about. But has been pointed out many a time, most of them are clueless and some serve as nothing but schills for certain GMs spewing out whatever drivel they are told to.
