I loved Lou Piniella when I was a kid watching baseball.
I loved all of those Yankees of that era -- Nettles and Guidry and Chambliss and Dent and, yes, Reggie.
Those guys were all men.
I don't know what to say about some of the angsty crybaby millionaires in MLB today:
"That was pretty intense words he was throwing out there yesterday. I was actually wondering if I would even be coming to the field today after that,'' Grieve said. "I don't know. I'm kind of scared to go approach the guy right now. I don't know what to say.''
Intense is when Jessica Lynch finds herself in an Iraqi hospital, not when your manager wonders why your head is stuck up your ass. Suck it up and play ball.
