I once heard/read that only petty people have petty grievances. Petty be me
I find it amusing the things that somewhat intelligent people get their knickers in a twist about until I remember how twisted my knickers are.
I almost never forgave Sandy Koufax when I was seven when my brother told me Koufax loved basketball more than baseball. In my defense, I was seven.
I thought Robin Yount was a chump for 20 years because he wanted to be a pro golfer instead of a baseball player.
I could never root for Gary Sheffield for two reasons. Purposely making errors at 19 because they wouldn’t let him be the worst SS in the history of baseball. And for extorting the Dodgers in the Piazza deal.
Broxton for Matt Stairs
Moe Drabowsky for making the Dodgers look silly in the first World Series I ever listened to on the radio
George Sherrill for Ryan Howard. You had one job. One job only.
Davey Lopes for mocking Jim Bouton when he hit a home run off of him
Charley Steiner and Rick Monday because they don’t allow me to enjoy the one thing I used to enjoy the most, listening to a Dodger game on the radio.
Comments in blogs that accuse everyone of something when in fact it might have been one, it might have been two, it might have been the majority, but it was never ever “everyone”.
Bill Russell for hitting Reggie Jackson in the hip instead of the head
Pitchers who get upset at bat flips.
Hitters who bat flip on a home run and are still losing
AL pitchers who intentionally throw at hitters knowing how safe they are from retribution and that only their teammates will pay the price.
Fans in the first row who don’t defend the home turf against the visitors
Ryan Howard, Matt Stairs, Jimmy Rollins, Matt Adams, and Matt Carpenter. LHH who have sent the Dodgers home in October in the 21st century. It is getting beyond annoying.
To be honest, those are just a few, and if I dug deep they stop being petty and you’d wonder why Phil isn’t on some type of medication.
