Wonder how Kris Benson feels about this... oh, wait:

Kris Benson recently said, "Maybe he'll finally be fired before that," referring to McClendon and this series. This could be some bulletin board material or a prelude to a beaning. It could also be a prelude to an actual dismissal of McClendon, I donít know.

I doubt anyone could have done much better with his Pirates.

I hope this dont sound racist, but its nice to see african american managers being treated equally.......hehe.

I should NOT have said that.
Wheres my erasure?
