No guns in the clubhouse; bats still OK

Gilbert Arenas.jpgIt’s a sad, sad day when law abiding ballplayers can’t bring their sidearms into the clubhouse:

Major League Baseball has a new message for players and employees
this spring training: Keep guns, long knives and explosives out of the
clubhouse.

Signs have been placed in spring training locker rooms stating
“individuals are prohibited from possessing deadly weapons while
performing any services for MLB.” The rules apply to employees of the
commissioner’s office, other central baseball businesses and to teams,
including players.

In all seriousness, good for Major League Baseball for removing such a pervasive threat to ballplayer safety.  Of course, if they were truly serious about this they’d ban baseball bats too. Those things can be deadly.

    What about tennis balls stuffed with wooden match heads?

    More Obama! These damn liberal pinko commie socialized MF’s just took out the 2nd Amendment’s right to bare arms.
    Now all of MLB will have to wear long-sleeved shirts, and can’t plug whomever they want in the dugout.
    It’s outrageous! It’s egregious! It’s onerous! It’s burdensome! And it’s something the unemployed lawyer guy should be doing something about, even in his undies!

    What? How are they going to protect themselves now? What if an Ump gets too wild? How can they control that now? What a bunch of wusses.

    Awe nuts. I guess the next thing to go are the brass knuckles and battle axes. There is no fun in the game any longer. We may not watch any more. How exciting can it be? Guess we will have to stick with a dull game of Hockey.

    Try to console yourself with cockfights, ratting tourneys and dogfighting till the big show begins this Spring. There’s nothing, but nothing, like a World Cup soccer riot. Your frisson is beating its path to your door.
