    Is Rick Dempsey a peabrain?



    Desperate for a topic unrelated to the half dozen quarterbacks currently associated with the Ravens, I stumbled across a second (!) major professional sports team in Baltimore.

    Rough transcipt of a live interview of Jay Gibbons' wife during a ballgame & about her charity work, per Rick Maese's column:
    Dempsey: "Laura, will this kind of help Jay in the domestic violence area? If he doesn't start getting a few more hits, you might grab him around the neck and rough him up a little bit. [Is] this money going to go to help him a little bit with maybe some of the hospital bills or something like that?"

    Giuliani: "I don't know, Rick. I don't think I'm encouraging that. I'm definitely not --"

    Dempsey: "Not going there?"

    Giuliani: "Nope, not going there."

    Dempsey: "All right, I'll domestically violate him if he doesn't start getting some more hits."

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    I was watching the game when he said that and really couldn't believe what I was hearing.
    ''You'd love to go on the first day but I'm glad for the situation I'm in,'' he said. ''Baltimore knows how to play defense.''

    Dempsey is a lush. He drunkenly came onto my friend's sister, who was about 17 at the time, when she worked at Bo Brooks. He comes across as an Angelos lackey too because he seems to keep hanging around the team in some capacity.

    Poor choice of words and poor subject to joke about.

    That said, Gibbons is horrible.

    Basically. Although Dempsey shouldn't have said it, Gibbons can't pay for a base hit.
    Waiting for the next one!!!

    Maybe NST starts a new protest to get him fired.

    Talk about not understanding things. Drew and Casey are just another example of the media blowing something out of proportion and wanting someone to pay even though it's not a big deal.

    Im with RM on this.

    He apologized for a stupid thing. That should be the end of it.

    This is absolutely political correctness coming out and it's getting out of control.

    It's pretty obvious that Rick wasn't condoning anything about domestic violence.

    But the PC police come out in full force and make this shit into something it's not.

    It's funny how some people can say whatever they want without any repercussions yet others get roasted for something that wasn't even close to being malicioius. Look at the context, analyze what the person said, then make your conclusion.

    To even insinuate that Dempsey should be fined, let alone fired, is ridiculous.

    THAT, would be the real joke.

    I think he is funny but I am easily amused.

    He had some great comments this past weekend about the 5-man rotation and how he thinks they need to go back to a 4-man for better competition. He said he tried to implement a 4-man rotation when he was the manager of the Dodger's and got shot down and almost fired for even suggesting it.

    So the other day Steve Trachsel pitches and they take him out after 86 pitches and 6 innings when he had only given up 1 run and the score was tied 1-1. WTF?!?!?!

    Perlozzo took Guthrie out last night after the sixth inning when he had thrown just 67 pitches and gave up just 1 run. I understand Guthrie may have come from the BP but come on, with a 4 run lead, you have to let him go out there and pitch a little longer.

    To answer your question, Yes! . At least Angelos got one thing , well, half right. Perlozzo may not be the right guy, but imagine the Demper as the O's manager?
