Repeat the meme

T.J. Simers rips on Juan Pierre in today's dog trainer.

There is a time and a place to say that Juan Pierre is not a good everyday major leaguer and should be benched and used as a pinch hitter. That time is any time you can get anyone to listen, and that place is anywhere that anyone will let you write it and not punch you in the face.

Is Simers' piece mean-spirited? You bet it is. I tend not to read his column because it's mean-spirited about everything. That might seem hypocritical from the author of the OutWatch, but I hope you'll believe me when I say that I reserve the wrath and anger in my life for this blog. I get my hate out on Juan Pierre. I'm generally not a hateful person, so it's tough to read his column.

Still, when it comes to Juan Pierre, all bets are off. Say it loud, say it proud: Juan Pierre is not a good everyday major leaguer and should be benched and used as a pinch hitter! It's not pithy and it doesn't fit on a bumper sticker, but it's not hyperbole -- it's just what should happen.

You might be mean, T.J., but the OutWatch thanks you for repeating the meme.

I don't know, Humma. T.J. is so obnoxious in this article it may be a little like having Osama bin Laden come out against Bush. Thanks for the help, but no thanks.

I mean the subtitle of that article coul have been, "Hello, I am the world's biggest dick." He clearly couldn't have been anywhere near that obnoxious in person, as he would have had his head caved in. So it is a comical retelling of how he was a total dick to Pierre? Why do these people have jobs? I am so glad I canceled my L.A. Times.*

*Admission: I moved and my new place already had the Times, so I actually still get it. But I don't pay for it.

Just because Osama thinks that Bush is a bad president doesn't mean he's a good president.

Just because T.J. Simers is the world's biggest dick doesn't mean that Juan Pierre is a good baseball player.

Just because I type mostly inscrutable sentences on this blog doesn't mean that I don't get paid, handsomely, to craft a PR message for a major company.
