I can't imagine what the reaction would be if this guy ever got another at bat. I'm sure plenty of idiots would be cheering for him, the same as if Sosa stepped up to the box for another shot.

Let him get tested so then he'll get suspended for 50 games.

Wasn't it Bill Veeck that did it w/Minne Minnosa in the 70's?

PED's aside, Big Mac may make a good hitting coach. I'm hoping he does well there

he is not going in, thats a non factor.

this year he had 23% of the votes. he was between Tim Raines and Alan Trammell. with 8 others ahead of him.

You'd have to wonder what the opposing pitcher would feel about that too... he'd might even bean him.

The thought of this clown around young baseball players teaching them how to "hit" makes me sick to my stomach.
