I heard this on Mike & Mike this morning. I was going to search for it and post it here, but got busy. I think it's hilarious. I don't have a problem with women in the dugouts, as long as they can stand the smell, but I don't have a problem with Keith Hernandez's opinions either, though probably not the correct venue... :-?

I don't like it. By having a girl in the clubhouse, she is taking the job away from a sportsloving man who dreams of rubbing down athletes.

There are some out there. My friend is one of them, stuck at a AA program.

I was watching the game live and heard this...very funny...especially in his Keith's lady-like voice. Heck if they let Kerry Wood & Prior sit in the dugout, why not a chick massage therapist.

I would have liked to hear it live and get it from him instead of reading about it with the spin put on it by the author of the article.

It doesn't look good on paper, but depending on how he said it - the tone, the context, the cadence - it could be completely different than how the article characterizes it.

Slow news day, apparently.

This is just another example just boys just being boys and what they say being blown out of proportion. I honestly don't think he was trying to offend anyone, he was just being himself. This is both a good and not so good quality of a commentator. He does have a high pitched voice for being a big mustache guy.

ESPN has a poll on whether or not Keith should be fired... fired? are you serious? Perhaps he should have used some more discretion and considering the way things are these days, you really have to watch what you say when you're in the public arena. But I don't consider his remark to be hateful or bigoted; just inappropriate and perhaps a little silly.
