And no, I'm not talking about his abysmal stats this season, or the fact that he looks about as comfortable at the plate as Rey Ordonez. Rather, our .250-hitting catcher had this to say yesterday:Mike Piazza, who was not in the starting lineup, spent his free time getting a baseball autographed by the radio commentator Rush Limbaugh. "It was like meeting George Washington," Piazza said.
What an utterly idiotic thing to say. I'm not carping about personal politics - if you love Rush, more power to ya. But jeez, I've fucking met Al Franken, and I sure as hell wouldn't compare him to George Washington. More like driving over the George Washington Bridge, only a little funnier. Has Piazza gone nuts? Yeesh.
