Rob Neyer

Does MLB Need DUI Policy With Teeth? - Baseball Nation
Rob Neyer wonders if baseball should institute some form of punishment for players who are charged with a DUI. To me it's a simple answer, yes. Not for PR purposes, but because it's such a silly thing for players to do and so easily avoidable especially for a majority of players who have quite a bit of disposable income. Don't like the smelly cab driver? Hire some hottie to drive you home.

Baseball Video Highlights & Clips | TOR@TB: Upton tossed after striking out in the ninth - Video | Multimedia
5/4/11: B.J. Upton argues after striking out in the ninth inning and gets ejected from the game. I remember watching an interview with he and his brother Justin, and B.J. seemed to be the more laid back one. After this incident and his scuff with teammates last year, it appears Justin is the more laid back one. But that usually happens when things are going well for you.

Bill James - The Colbert Report - 5/5/11 - Video Clip | Comedy Central
