David Eckstein: Spot the Euphemism!

Let's see. He's fresh and gritty according to the Star (sort of like the "everything" bagel we had this morning. Hey-O!)

The gamblers in Costa Rica call him scrappy. (Yo ticos! Pura vida! Imperials all around!)

Gibbers calls him a "throwback", "small, but strong", and a "good fundamental-type hitter."

Meanwhile, the Scripps news service calls him a bumbling, butter-fingered fool in the field. (We're paraphrasing.)

We're just gonna cut through the crap, and call Eckstein what everyone wants to call him: a short little white dude. And one who is keeping Johnny Mac on the bench at that. And as far as we're concerned, nobody puts Johnny Mac in the corner.

That last line just made me think, "Who puts Johnny Mac in the corner?" "Noooooooobody!"

When we boooooed Royce Clayton, they ditched him. So let's all just BOOOED that peckerhead Eckstein, and get Johnny Mac back where he belongs !!!
