If Baker or Guillen said some of the stuff they have said while working as part of a broadcast team and during the broadcast of a game, you can bet they'd be fired for it. Similarly, if Lyons said we he said as a coach or player, people would have talked about it for a little while then nothing would have happened. The double standard has nothing to do with what was said, but by whom it was said, and the capicity in which he said it.
