Buck Showalter Is A Chickenshit Manager

And it's pretty obvious why that is. Walking Guerrero four times today, and arguably none of the times qualified as "game winning strategy" with hot hitting Juan Rivera up after him, proven by the homer.

"Allowing" him to bat in the 8th, big freakin' deal. I was kind of hoping Scioscia would have taken Vlad out at that point, but at least Scioscia and Guerrero are real men and took their chances with the at bat.

Showalter is no real man. He put gamesmanship with one player ahead of his team's chances to win. That is the ultimate definition of chickenshit.

Not that it matters, but I lost whatever respect I had for Showalter with today's classless shit. There's no place for that kind of crap in baseball. If Baseball could do it, I'd fine his ass or suspend him, because he wasn't playing to win.

Tom Hicks should fire him, if Hicks had half a clue. And it isn't the idea that the hitting streak ended, because what was more important is the Angels winning the game.

It's the idea Showalter practically lost the game on purpose. Buck Showalter is a prick, and has no business being in a dugout if he's got that much of a red ass.
