Fay Vincent on ‘roid users, gamblers

Pretty funny quote from an NYT piece about the different tacts taken by A-Rod, Pete Rose and Clemens after their misdeeds:

“I think in some cases, it just comes down to intelligence, and Rodriguez is significantly more intelligent than Clemens and Rose,” Vincent said.

    Nothing to see here. Move along. No steroids. Never happened. Just ask Mark McGwire or Bud Selig.

  2. Pete Rose is one of the dumbest human beings around.

    I think Clemens could outdumb him, any day of the week. Pete’s less dumb than just a bad combo of ignorant and arrogant. Clemens is actually stupid.

  4. And, I must add, Clemens is a product of that “university of the first class” in Texas.

    I heard Buster Olney on 790 this morning say that our best chance to trade for a big hitter could be Lowe for Milton Bradley, that the Cubs might be a willing partner. We do a salary dump and Bradley’s contract is light enough that we could cut him during the season if he was a disaster.

    I kind of like the idea of punctuating Bobby’s farewell tour with Milton Bradley assaulting umpires and getting into fistfights with fans. Cox could show his ‘player’s manager’ mettle one last time. As long as MB rips the ball I’ll be fine with it.

    I could be wrong, but isn’t Milton Bradley a bi-polar alcoholic with anger issues? Bad combo. Terrible case of wasted talent. Don’t really want him in my clubhouse if I’m a manager.

  7. Bradley’s contract isn’t that light: 2 years remaining at $21 mil. Besides all the attitude problems, he’s also very injury prone. No way, no how.

    I’ve always liked Vincent’s statements on the current state of the game. Pretty straightforward. That’s why the owners got rid of him.

  9. ‘Isn’t Milton Bradley a bi-polar alcoholic with anger issues?’ Yes. He’s like a black, baseball playing Charles Bukowski.

  10. Nice comparison there; any idea if he ever worked at the Post Office?
