hOlier than aubrey
Huff was asked about [the city of] Baltimore’s respect towards the team, in
comparison to Tampa, where Huff spent the better part of seven seasons.
“It is [respected] because it’s an older organization. It’s got some
pride, but what a horse[shit] city,” Huff said. “The way we’re playing we’re
going to have as many fans as in Tampa.”
how dare aubrey note how:
- orioles, himself included, aren't playing well
- fans aren't coming anymore
- team has long, proud history
- turnaround better happen soon
yes, yes. aubrey was not as clean and sober as you'd like him to be, especially given PURITANICAL NATURE of team's fan-base. and perhaps he could have been more articulate. but nevermind that. Os fans are totally telling on him! they will not rest until andy macphail trades infielder to another team for ... well ... a case of red bull?
throw him in the tub!
IF HE SINKS, HEEEEZAAAA WITCH!
maybe this will be lynchpin, fulcrum, moment in time, that propels team into a true rebuilding cycle. if it is, then aubrey-as-fall guy is a small price to pay. after all brian roberts hit .290 whereas aubrey only hit .280! and b-rob, for example, was probably sober THE WHOLE TIME and NEVER looked at adult entertainment THE WHOLE TIME!
and that is what matters most about baseball -- just ask manny ramirez and hideki matsui.
