Buck Showalter Is The Man

24 03 2011

Plain and simple, the man has an enormous set of balls on him.  It’s his first managerial year in the AL East and the man has come out swinging.  The first two people to stand in his way….Derek Jeter and the entire Red Sox organization, more specifically GM Theo Epstein.  Love it.

“Fuck Boston & NY”

He must be feeling pretty confident that Derrick Lee & Vladimir Guerrero are going to have the Orioles competing.  But Buck sees what most see, the Yankees & Red Sox’s are assholes.  Plain and simple.

“I’d like to see how smart Theo Epstein is with the Tampa Bay payroll,” he barked. “You got Carl Crawford ’cause you paid more than anyone else, and that’s what makes you smarter? That’s why I like whipping their butt. It’s great, knowing those guys with the $205 million payroll are saying ‘How the hell are they beating us?’”

Then Showalter took aim at the next best thing, the New York Yankees poster boy, Derek Jeter.  Jeter is a big fan of pulling what we here in Philly know as the “Pat Burrell Butt Bailout.”  One major difference between the two players, Jeter has the clout to get that called a ball, whereas Burrell, the umpires are calling that a strike 8 times out of 10.  No matter what.  Showalter has noticed Jeter’s and perhaps his teams proclivity to use that move, and frankly he doesn’t like it….

“The first time we went to Yankee Stadium, I screamed at Derek Jeter from the dugout,” the former Yankee manager told the magazine, according to The St. Petersburg Times. “Our guys are thinking, ‘Wow, he’s screaming at Derek Jeter.’ Well, he’s always jumping back from balls just off the plate. I know how many calls that team gets – and yes, he (ticks) me off.”

You just have too and I mean absolutely have to respect a pair of balls that big.  He knows his team will not compete with either of those teams, he’s a manager on the fucking Orioles.  But it doesn’t matter, win or lose, Buck Showalter is going to talk shit and tell you what an asshole you are.  In this day and age, where this country is becoming emasculated and the pussification of America is everywhere you look, it’s good to see a man speaking without regard to Jeter or the Red Sox.  The Orioles are still going to suck and be basement dwellers in that division, but they might as well talk shit while doing it.
