I don't want to say it, but I'm going to anyway.

Sweet Lou must have become a message board guy in his retirement.

A former big league manager makes a stupid remark that gets him into hot water?

The Miami Marlins probably have a job offer on the way!

How silly.

Seriously, if certain writers/news outlets inform people that they SHOULD find something wrong with what somebody said, they will.

Fans who watched this game didnt flinch when Lou said this.

I've been reading ths website for a while. I remember a past write-up by Brett, that when attempting to analogize a poor influence on a team's organization, he referred to them as being a "cancer". Should anyone who's ever had cancer, or anyone who's had a loved one die from cancer, be offended for his "stupid remarks"?

How about when Brett talks about a team being "killed" by another team? Should anyone who's has a family member who was killed, be offended?

Enough with the false outrage. What the fuck happened to men?

I'm not sure anyone on here is "outraged". Or perhaps you were talking about the people on Deadspin. I dunno.

Why should people be outraged? The man has a right to say what he wants. Provided that he isn't saying fire in a crowded theater.

How about real outrage about people who aren't outraged? Because you sound pretty upset about this ...

You might say he's outraged, even.

I was thinking more along the lines of abhorred.

He seems as upset about this as I am when I run out of hamburgers.

Obviously you haven't read anything about this incident. Multiple papers made a fuss over this incident, forcing Lou to publicly apologize in order to keep his job.

Furthermore, Spencer - who now wishes to act like he doesn't think that this was a big deal - started a thread over this harmless incident, linking the article, writing that it was "self-explanatory".

Luke then draws a comparison between Ozzie Guillen's support for Fidel Castro, and what Lou said.

Should you have to publicly apologize for your "cancer" analogies?

This should have been a non-story.

When you run out of hamburgers, people die.
