Around the Horn has the Hernandez segment on deck after the commercial break, so you may catch the audio there, or possibly on PTI after ;-D

The audio was hilarious. It sounded as if he was actually angry and disturbed that there was a woman in the dugout getting high fives and everything. And the other guy says, "You shouldn't have said that..." or something like that. :-b

There is no way Keith Herandez should fired over this. :-t

Comments weren't PC, but it shouldn't cost him his job.

People have lost jobs over stupider things. Wait until the Fem-nazis get a hold of this.

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


I can't tell if you're being serious or not, but how is this taking a job away from a man? And why should it be a man's job in the first place?

Anyway, was this a stupid thing to say? Yes. Is it being blown way out of proportion? Yes. Should he be fired? No way.

My thoughts exactly. The guy said something asinine, but this shouldn't warrant much more than a talking-to.

If it does, he's getting screwed, not the chick.

Yep. The news is a commodity that they're selling us. ESPN, CBS, CNN, they're all the same.

When you have 10+ 24-hour news channels and four or five more dedicated solely to sports, you have to fill all that programming time with something, real or not.

I dont believe a word of this. Keith Hernandez could never have said a thing like this. If you ask me this is a conspiracy against Keith Hernandez. There had to have been a second bigot.

This looks like the work of Roger McDowell. Again. Me and my buddies were out in the bullpen cursing at him all game so it just had to have been him. :-t
