I just got done reading Hal's latest article (nice job BTW,) but doesn't Hawk use the term "carmine derriere" for benchwarmers? :?:

No, he uses it the term to mean a hothead; someone easily agitated and/or ready to throw down.

It's a broadcast euphemism for "red a**". The plain form is an extremely old baseball expression for somebody who is 100% Type A zero-BS serious. It's got nothing to do with the bench.

Think Carlton Fisk. The day he chewed out Deion for not running out a popup is the epitome of being an RA.

Great explanation. It's not a bad thing at all, although it could be. Just a guy who doesn't take any ****.

I think I'd rather be called a hothead than a carmine derriere.

Hawk said the same thing about Terry Bevington the day he was named Gene Lamont's successor. His exact words were, "Boomer's [Bevington] got the pinkie [r.a.]." At the time I thought it was pretty funny. Hopefully, A.J. works out better than Bevington.
