Dusty Baker Can't Stop Calling Bryce Harper "Royce", And He's Starting Remind Me Of Another Former Cubs Manager
Oh my God...Baker is Martinella...Martinella is Baker...
That's not racist, is it? Two former Chicago Cubs Managers -one real, one fictional- that can't seem to call their superstar players by the proper name. I can't be alone in seeing the irony in this, right? There's no way I was the only one to instantly draw this comparison. It's almost like fate. Bet you can't name another Manager in baseball that doesn't know his best player's name. That's why I don't feel at all bad saying that Sal Martinella and Dusty Baker are the exact same person. There's no other explanation for such an absurd coincidence. Sure, botching the name of a 12 year old that broke his arm and miraculously found his way to the Major Leagues in a make-believe movie is nowhere near as egregious as repeatedly screwing up the name of one of the most promising young players in all of professional baseball. Still, it would be hard to argue that the players in question weren't equally as important to their respective teams. Plus, 'Runamucka' is just as big of a bumbling of 'Rowengartner' as 'Royce' is of 'Bryce'. This isn't an "all black people are the same to me" situation. It's an "all black people that have appeared to manage the Cubs at any point and have trouble remembering names are the same to me" situation. Totally different. Just envision "Rosenbagger, warm up. You're going in" coming from the lips of Dusty Baker and tell me I am wrong...
