Quick baseball chat, especially since the Red Sox are my American League team. In the middle of a game Wednesday night, Major League Baseball sent an official to examine the uniform of Boston manager Terry Francona. He wears a pull -ver throughout the game, but MLB rules demand that all personel wear the actual uniform top during the game. Needless to say, Francona was ticked.
First, how stupid is this? Is there any other sport where the coach has to wear the uniform? The only thing dumber is the NFL being against their coaches wearing suits.
Second, it shows the priorities in the game when steroid use/abuse was overlooked for years but no way in Hades are they going to let a manager not wear his uniform. Bud Selig, history will reward you.
No worries. This is the year the Yankees miss the play-offs.
