Thread: Red Sox v. Yankees

    I don't know, it is not like he got busted for using PED's or anything.

    The guy took a few moments to like a fb photo while using the rest room. OK, he violated a team rule about using phones, but this seem way overblown to me. His apology was like something you hear at a murder trial from a defendant trying to show remorse.

    I get that the optics suck, but it Just seems over the top to me. I wonder if this would have been overblown if he were hitting .340 with 40 HR's.

    I'm not sure what you mean by overblown.

    The guy broke a rule, and was disciplined for it.

    The rest of it is funny - team dynamics and fan reaction stuff. It's funny because they are in last place, were losing that game, and Sandoval isn't hitting .340. The connection of his weight with the chicken and beer of the last collapse is clever.

    This is the way sports is supposed to be, silly nonsense that means little in the real world.

    Like Detroit fans who've given the manager a nickname - Ass Mess.

    I think I was referring to his apology which was reminiscent of what you would expect to hear from Ray Rice, of Josh Hamilton, or someone who was just suspended for like 100 games:

    I made a mistake [Wednesday]. I learned from that. I'm a human being, I made a mistake, so I apologize to my teammates, to the team, to the organization, the fans support."This is a thing that I pushed the ['like'] button at the wrong time. I hit a 'like.' I was in the bathroom, I pushed it at the wrong time. ... I just grabbed my phone and checked it."

    To tell you the truth, that is what made me laugh. You would think he got caught shooting himself in the leg while in a Manhattan club or somethng
