Yeah, the baseball season is over. But snackin’ season never ends.
#SaveStephenStrasburg: According to Jon Heyman, talks between the Nationals and presumed new manager Bud Black have stalled. In a stunning turn of events, sources claim that our pet trainwreck, the Washington Nationals, are going to hire Dusty Baker for their new manager. Hold on, I gotta take a second.
OK, I’m back from laughing my ass off. Seriously? Dusty Baker? Heyman says that the Nats are interested in Dusty because he has experience managing superstars like Barry Bonds, and they want someone who can handle Bryce Harper. He’s also notorious for screwing up young pitchers, and while the Nationals’ pitching staff isn’t particularly young, there’s five words that should strike fear into the heart of anyone with a lick of common sense. Those words are DUSTY BAKER MANAGING STEPHEN STRASBURG.
I see this in Stras’ immediate future:
The Forecast Is Party: So, last night, Kansas City partied so hard that it showed up on radar. For real.
That’s some serious celebration. Somewhere Andrew WK is crying.
Here’s Your Stupid For The Week: If the Nats considering Dusty isn’t enough stupid for you, you’ll need to sit down for this one. This comes courtesy of a man we all love to hate, Curt Schilling. His stupidity will speak for itself.
I just. I can’t. First Terry Collins is to be avoided like grocery store sushi at the end of the night. Harvey is ride or die. Then suddenly Collins is an idiot for leaving him on the mound? That was your plan of attack, Schill!
You know he’s over there re-reading his twitter timeline like
