In Dusty's defense on CZam leading off the inning, he's probably got a better average this year than the people he had to pinch hit with on the bench. ;-D

Dusty Baker met his match last night in Jim Tracy. Probably the only manager in the league having a worse year. The Cubs and Dodger manager took turns last night in attempting to hand the game to the other starting in the 9th inning, with all the dumb sac bunt attempts.

Remember, it's tennis elbow. I'm thinking that Zam's early exit in the French Open, let Dusty believe that he can go out and throw 130 pitches.

It not like he doesn't have his reasonings.
A bunch of toothless hicks if you ask me.
Cubs fans deserve what they get, which hopefully is nothing!!! :-t


"Hawkins, (who grew up in Gary, Ind,) showed me a whole bunch of his letters that opened with the big 'N,' you know what I'm saying?" Baker told Chicago reporters. "You think that's not real, but it still happens in 2005. It's not very pleasant to read, especially when this is your own hometown."

Baker said moving to the Giants is "probably better for him. ... It's tough down there (in the Cubs' bullpen) when you're exposed and you have to hear the stuff. There were negative vibes everywhere."

Baker told Chicago reporters


oh ... even those this obvioussly hit the AP yesterday. Do a Google News search for 'Hawkins Hate Mail' and you only get two main hits. ONE Chicago Paper and one SF Paper.

I can promise you this though, if Baker had nothing to back it up, and used the word "Racism", it would be front page on the sports section on everypaper in the country, and there would be an opinion piece calling for his head. Fox News would be doing an expose!


Its disgusting. :-t

Oh and since we are on the subject of Racism in the media ...

I know most of you watch one of them, CNN, FOX, MSNBC ...

When was the last time you saw an Amber Alert for a minority child?
Its always the little blonde hair blue eyed girl who gets the national exposure. Apparently minority children don't get kidnapped. And the only reason they show that stuff, is it is what the "polls" say the sheep watch.

See, that's the difference between racists and non-racists.

Racists think LaTroy Hawkins sucks because he's black.
Non-racists think LaTroy Hawkins sucks because he sucks.

What sucks is that people think Latroy sucks. He doesn't suck. He will be great in San Fran.
