A Question

Is this really "racist?"

"I just cannot watch this brand of baseball any longer," Krueger said. "A truly awful, pathetic, old team that only promises to be worse two years from now. It's just awful. It really is bad to watch. Brain-dead Caribbean hitters hacking at slop nightly."

Larry Krueger is a talk show host for KNBR, a flagship radio station for the San Fran evilGiants. Considering how few "Caribbean" born players the Giants have, my opinion is that Krueger is an idiot, but not a racist or bigot. The man was speaking his mind in the absurd and crazy mode that radio hosts tend to.

What do y'all think?

It's probably not even all that stupid.

Are the Giants hitting well lately?

Giants, 2005 to date:

.267/.326/.400 (AVG/OBP/SLG)

Giants, last 7 days:


Yeah, I'd say they suck.

And Alou probably wishes he had Cream of Wheat for brains...

Another quick thought: is it racist to state the plain truth: the Giants' offensive woes are the direct result of Barry Bonds not being in the lineup?
