Jorge Posada & Sarah Silverman

Jorge Posada has been one of the all-time great Yankees.  But last Saturday, batting around .165, when placed 9th in the order against Boston, he opted out of the game.  Terrible decision.  Why?  Because Jorge has more class than that, and he needs to consider that people remember best what we do last.  If he can’t be a big man now, it will make people forget he was a great player back when…

Still, much worse than that was the cameo appearance of Sarah Silverman in the Fox booth during the national broadcast.  The utterly unfunny segment was transformed into a complete disgrace when Silverman suggested that pitchers ought to use LSD, a la Doc Ellis.  Has there been a more evident lowpoint in the history of live TV?  FOX dumped the audio for a few choice comments made, but it would have been preferable to cut the whole thing short.

Bad day tuning in as a Yankee fan, yet truly awful as a parent, or someone just seeking decent, quality entertainment.
