Default Speaking of idiots...

... as I was writing about John Kruk, I have the Yankee-Dodger game on in the background, and Derek Jeter just got hit by a pitch on his hand during a bunt attempt. There was a bit of an argument from the catcher, who claimed it was foul. Anyway, the replay is inconclusive and Tim McCarver says that the batter's reaction is the best way to tell if a guy's been hit or not. OK, fair enough, I think. Then they show Jeter and McCarver says that because he put his hand over his head after the pitch came in, it was obvious that he got hit and that guys can't think that fast.

*****, Tim. They teach that crap in high school. I must have faked an ump into thinking I got hit at least 4-5 times in my glorious, 1-year baseball career.

What a moron.

I never noticed how dull McCarver is until he was no longer working with Al Micheals.
