We discuss Shane Victorino's call-out of another local radio show, and debate the merits of Victorino's claims.

[0:04:29] ... he has been pretty forthright in the past about wanting to get Cole Hamels on the state. Kind of grew up in the baseball world with Cole Hamels plate with them teammate friend all let's stop and Cole Hamels of very good pitcher in the Majorly. And what what chain Victor Reno said two way Philadelphia reporter and I'm paraphrasing here was basically. You know you hope that your prospects eventually become a guy like Cole Hamels. So if you've got the opportunity to acquire a guy like Cole Hamels and give up prospects you do it every time. And at least one media outlet in this town took that to mean that he was taking shots at McKee that's. Simply because Betts was a threat to his playing position on the team and I don't think he is that's is the center fielder. Chain victory know the right field that rusty cast steel might be the threat to his playing position here but I don't think it's smoky vets. Or that he was taking shots at the five pitchers in the current rotation. Basically saying I'd rather have Cole Hamels here than one of them. I probably would rather have Cole Hamels here at them. One or two of them killed so I mean he's always I rather have Cole Hamels and say Blake why hard auto don't talk about pitchers in the rotation. Of the of the five pitchers in the rotation at this point as he was dogged by anybody in the clubhouse right but he else won him. He back and they call it today about that and said you know hey I'll I I'd go to war with those five guys anytime right because you know. If you want Cole Hamels in it means one of the five guys in the rotation now would have to be gone. And my point is yeah I'd rather have Cole Hamels then. Couple weeks maybe all this is I'm not rather Cole Hamels that any of the five in there. This is what. Victor you know and say and I wouldn't Cole Hamels than any of the five not because if he bit his career hasn't been outstanding but. Based on what I think you'll do going forward and my questions about what to do in the American League to accurately the American League east but anyway it's a call him. Shane Victorino said. Quote all I said was hey we get Cole Hamels and is giving up two or three guys I'm all for it. I never said anybody's name. And by the way he's ...
[0:11:43] ... who you know can perform at the Major League level. Talking about Cole Hamels so he's he's actually correct that he never talked about this guy or that night we inferred it. Because one of the things we have read out of Philadelphia is that the the Phillies if they were interested in trading Cole Hamels would want a guy like will keep them disaster or sore right I mean. He didn't say that infect maturing but he ...
[0:13:37] ... is kind of animal that we deal with no one of that Sean Payton was in the same thing the other day at the owners' meetings. When it came to that speculation that they're trying to trade drew breeze right right is that there's not one iota of truth to it. Drew Brees has a lot of good football left in him he's left in me the clean liver that he gave takes care of his body is superb athlete we have no. Interest in trading Drew Brees but if somebody says that. Now are you think it's true I gotta go in Diego with Philip Rivers the exact same scenario playing out now but he also would bring that back to Shane Victorino. What are you doing. I mean it's there's. You're here you're actually throwing sand into the wind when he got to do oh it's not gonna change this is the reality. Of but I do think that that what happened wise there was a Philadelphia Inquirer story. That said in a chain victory know so I give up prospects to get a guy like Cole Hamels and there was another separate tweet your story somewhere out there somewhere that set. Well the Phillies are interest that in bats and and lakes why heart and it then became washing Victor Reno wants to trade bets and why are to get Cole Hamels. That's how it it it kind of got present it he's just trying to get rid of a guy who's who's gonna ...
[0:16:52] ... all set now McKee that's him should he. You'd trade me for Cole Hamels when that's not what he said at all but that's now it's how being portrayed in some places. What would you do would you trade smoky transfer Cole Hamels. You see I say mean stuff. No it I would yeah I've I've I probably would not. I it. I I understand in theory what. What victory and it was talking about with. A proven Major League player bring you know what your getting Thacker you know Cole Hamels is a Major League player will keep that's sure looks like he's going to be. And it's founded I mean what what ...

These “Lie Witness News” videos never cease to fascinate me. It’s like there is literally nothing so idiotic you can’t get people to go along with if they think it will get them on television.

Not that I’m criticizing them, mind you. First of all, pulling opinions out of your ass about things you know nothing about is how I make my living. Second, I bet everyone they interviewed has a bracket that looks better than mine. I had the Pants Pickles going out in the Elite Eight.

Today down at the fort, Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino expressed his dismay at sports talk radio hosts spreading misinformation about him at the team.

[0:00:36] ... him as a pitcher. Against him I'm not talking about even just. Shane Victorino try to clear up his comments that may go Philadelphia needs him. Philly daily news read the quotes yesterday we talked about it a bit on this program that.

[0:01:25] ... in the outfield is post the infield. So you can see why Shane Victorino would be endorsing the notion of moving some prospector another. Now maybe it ends up being like sly art or at the beginning of his comments. Maybe they can't figure out a way to package bunches pitchers and set him up for Cole Hamels which would make everybody happy because nobody I feel like really wants to lose smoky Boettcher Blake's wife. Art in new this comment this is sort of like yo and first week with the first time receipt tweet that we can go that's it. David Ortiz out a couple of days dehydration but should here we go Sports Radio ready here we go. Enroll at this as a politics at the minute this quote came out and you knew it was gonna had adequate similar tablets yesterday at the beginning he says. Why would you pick not trading got the hope he comes Cole Hamels and now we're talking about the lefties that they have bright and Rio with Brian Johnson at Lederer reais.

I've from my point of view I sedition victory out he wanted to have a conversation. Eight you're right. You would get a lot better view got Cole Hamels is somebody who's a maybe. But I'll also say by seeing prospects in general and extending it took hitters like me to stop the quota pitchers think. Nobody would be donors but they always did the whole even when your computer thing. That's when people's I think light went on over the heads well maybe is talking about will keep bets. Maybe he's talking about Resnick is steel maybe has talked about Blake's wife art. Then it becomes self serving so I think he's white in his opinion about getting Cole Hamels is it about maybe up someone who turns into Cole Hamels. There is a self serving element to it as well.

The Smoking GunA jury today found a Michigan woman guilty of firing a shot into a McDonald’€™s drive-thru window after employees failed to put bacon on a cheeseburger she ordered.

Shaneka Monique Torres, 30, was convicted of a felony firearms charge after only an hour of deliberations by the panel. …

Torres fired a single shot into the McDonald’€™s at 3:10 AM last February 10, according to Grand Rapids police. The gunplay came after Torres and another woman “complained that the order was incorrect,” cops noted.

When a McDonald’€™s employee walked away from the drive-thru window, ‘€œone shot was fired from the suspect vehicle,’€ reported police …

Shortly after the shooting–which did not result in any injuries — cops located Torres and recovered the 9mm Glock handgun used during the bacon rage incident.

By no means do I advocate what Shaneka Monique Torres did here. I’m all about solving disputes non-violently, like mature, rational adults. To me, the customers in that McDonald’s have the right to sit there peaceably and kill themselves slowly with cholesterol and high fructose corn syrup, not by some stray bullet. So I want to be clear about the fact I condemn the bad choice Ms. Torres made here.

But just because I disagree with it doesn’t mean I don’t understand it. Bacon rage is no laughing matter. It’s a real problem and tears at the very fabric of our society. And I don’t mean to limit the discussion just to bacon rage. This pandemic cuts across all types of drive-thru rage. No ketchup rage. The “they didn’t give me dipping sauce for my nuggets” rage. Onions when you specifically said no onions rage. And I don’t even want to get into the nightmarish hellscape that is the coffee order.

So sometimes we can all be driven (no pun intended, but I won’t walk away from it, either) to the point of madness. And you feel like you really are left with two options:

  1. Turn the car around and waste your time arguing with a kid making minimum wage who since you left invented 12 new ways to not give a damn if you got what you ordered, or
  2. Let your 9mm glock pose the all-important, “when I asked for a Bacon Double Cheeseburger did you really think I wanted there to be no bacon on it?” question.

Again, I don’t approve of what Shaneka did, but if we’re having an adult conversation about this, we have to admit at times we’ve all been in her shoes. #JusticeforShaneka

Holley 1991

For Throwback Thursday I can think of nothing better than this “New Employee” photo of Michael Holley from his legendary 1991 stint at the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and it can be yours on eBay right now for the low, low price of just $20. Though I imagine that once the ladies of the world get a gander at this, the bidding war will commence, so avoid the rush.

Then, as now, there just aren’t O’s in the word “smooth” to describe the man.
