Reason #47 Clint Hurdle Is A Dumbass

14 Jul

Seconds after naming Ben Sheets the National League starting pitcher for tomorrow night’s All-Star game, Rockies manager Clint Hurdle explained his reasoning:

“His pedigree speaks for itself,” Hurdle said. “He brings his lunch pail to work every day. He takes the ball, he’s no-nonsense. He’s blue-collar. I like everything about him. I’ve liked him for a long time. It was the perfect match for me.”

Yes, he brings his lunch pail to word, he’s no-nonsense and he’s Mr. Blue Collar. Why, he’s David Eckstein with the ball in his hand!  He has a gritty fastball and a dirt dog curveball!  Meanwhile, a guy like Edinson Volquez is a latte-sipping, white-collar frilly ass bastard.

See how ridiculous you sound Mr. Hurdle?  I get you’re complimenting Sheets, but couldn’t you think of something better than tired cliches?
