The Wally Backman Blowup, Part 2 (Video)
Apparently Wally Backman had a few more f-bombs to drop following his hilarious mic’d up tirade that earned him an ejection the other day. Rather than the umpire, this time it was the opposing team’s announcer on the receiving end.
It looks like the people at Playing For Peanuts may be on to something here. Stick a microphone on Wally Backman, follow him around with a camera, and there you have it. The next big reality television show!
For teams like Tampa Bay, Cincinnati and Toronto, who find themselves at the bottom of the MLB’s average attendance in 2010, they may want to consider Backman as their next bench boss. After all, winning games does not appear to be filling the seats.
