hOlier than aubrey

baltimore examiner story seems to have aubrey quote that set off nation of clean-living orioles fans!
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!


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.

Haha - great idea to dunk the non-performers - get one of those carnival games and let the fans throw balls to dunk them.

Here's my 2007 roster of Os who were available and should have been in Balto:

1B - Derrek Lee
2B - B-Rob
SS - Miggie
3B - Mike Lowell
RF - Vlad
CF - Young Savior
SF - Junior Griffey
C - Pudge Rodriguez
LHP- Josh Beckett

Huff couldn't even DH on that team.

Hrm. That quote = not 100% accurate. The Love Sponge, after horseshit, said "Wow, Aubrey, you're gonna have everyone booing you." or so - to which Huffster replied "Well, the way we're playing, we're going to have as many fans as Tampa pretty soon."

so it's different - i am upset not because he pointed out obvious problems or because he loves to touch himself (who doesn't) but horseshit our fine city is not.

Thanks for quote clarification! Appears Examiner has quote essentially correct, except for Love Sponge interjection.
