Wonder if Mark McGwire is going to talk smack about Edwin Jackson after the game, just like he talked smack about J-Mac and Wandy last night. What a putz.


Captain Steroids should just be happy to somehow still have a job in baseball. Whatever happened to tipping your cap to the other guy when you get beat?

That was in the past, and he's not here to talk about the past.




:lol: :lol:

Love it

That's not true. Barry is not employed because he's an asshole and most players and coaches he was around were afraid of him or intimidated by him. Mark is not an asshole and has a much better rep with higher ups than Barry. Actually, Mark's been hounded much worse than the asking of this question, so you'd probably get away from the encounter with just a smile from him.

OK, fair enough. I'd rephrase to not include Bonds in the comparison, but then it wouldn't be so much of an implication of McGwire as it would the racism inherent in society in general, which would miss the whole point of the exercise, which was to antagonize McGwire because he is, in fact, an asshole (just not in the same way or to the same degree that Bonds is). Point withdrawn.
