Punchline



So Billy Crystal was signed to a minor league contract with the Yankees for one game... a spring training game against the Pirates. It's official, the rest of the league regards the Pirates with utter contempt.

Only one thing to do here- bean Billy Crystal.

Seriously. If he comes up to bat, put it in his ear.

This is the big leagues and the Pirates, despite some evidence to the contrary, are still a big league franchise. This is insulting. So Billy Crystal really likes the Yankees, fantastic. It's a ballgame to some of us, not a place for publicity stunts. They don't send fanboy celebrities to my office to mock me by moonlighting as my supervisor, why should the ballfield be any different?

The great thing about the game is that vigilante justice is possible.
