Showalter takes another jab at Yanks

At the end of his daily pregame media session, Orioles manager Buck Showalter took a little stab at the Yankees.

From the Baltimore Sun:

"Contrary to popular belief, every time the Yankees get hit by a pitch, it's not intentional," Showalter said. "Every time they take a pitch, it's not a ball either."

Orioles reliever Mike Gonzalez was ejected from Wednesday night's game after hitting the Yankees' Chris Dickerson in the 15th inning of New York's victory at Camden Yards.

Showalter got in a little hot water before the season when he ripped the Yankees in Men's Journal. In that interview, he said, "I know how many calls that team gets -- and yes, [Jeter] [ticks] me off."

Showalter should know, he was the beneficiary of the bias for those in pinstripes, if it exists, managing the Yankees from 1992-1995.

Showalter takes another jab at Yanks

Showalter like everyone else in baseball hates the Yankees. Why is this news? What's funny is Yankees fans think they get the raw end because of some delusional East Coast bias theory.

Buck is bitter because the Yankees screwed him over. He brought them back to the post-season for the first time in 14 years, then they brought in Joe Torre. He rebuilt them and they won 2 WS. He proved his mettle building the D-Backs from scratch and getting them in the playoffs in 1999. He has every right to feel that way.

Jeter gets the calls just like Pujols does. The veteran super stars tend to get the benefit of the doubt on close pitches. it's always been that way. Mantle, Mays, Aaron, Musial and Williams all got teh same treatment. If you are respectful to umps and are a long-time star, it happens. Duh.
