Quote of the Day: Ron Washington might spank Derek Holland

Jun 5, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

Jeff Fletcher of ESPNDallas.com asked Ron Washington what he’d do if Derek Holland has a second straight miserable start:

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington doesn’t expect Derek Hollandto have any sort of hangover from his miserable start last time on the mound. But if he does …

“I’m going to pull off my belt and throw him across my lap and give him a spanking,” Washington said with a smile.

    This world needs more Ron Washingtons

      Agreed; here’s hoping the political correctness police don’t pounce for his “support” of corporal punishment.

    Weirdest mental image ever.

      Especially if you toss in Holland’s goofy smile (assuming he’s in to that kind of thing)

    Jon Daniels: He’s not that hard, Derek. Tell him, Wash.
    Ron Washington: I’m incredibly hard.

      Alright…you just topped Matt Stairs’ “weirdest mental image ever.”
      Come on man! You have to go overboard didn’t you?

        Have you seen Moneyball? This is a play on a scene in that movie.

        damnit that was supposed to start at the 1 minute mark

      • stlouis1baseball - Jun 5, 2012 at 3:41 PM

        Only bits and pieces Alex. Thanks for clarifying.

    I’m glad we can make light of an act that in this day and age would have Child and Family Services knocking at one’s door.

    • stlouis1baseball - Jun 5, 2012 at 3:42 PM

      I hear you Alexo0. And that is sad (Child and Family Services knocking at one’s door that is).

    • pmcenroe - Jun 5, 2012 at 3:43 PM

      I know the ‘stache screams prepubescent but I’m fairly certain Holland is of age

      • alexo0 - Jun 5, 2012 at 4:08 PM

        But is it consentual?
