I missed this but apparently during the Yankees - Red Sox game while discussing Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka, Ron Darling made the following comment:
A little chink in the armor for Tanaka here. It’s the first inning where he’s lost a little of his control.
Can you all see it? Plain as day? The outrageous slur? If you caught it right off, you're better than me. I had to read it twice to figure out what people were upset about.
And, as you can imagine, the Outrage Police showed up demanding Darling's execution for using the word "chink" correctly and in context because it was, evidently, insulting to Tanaka - who is Japanese. Meanwhile, Darling, who's own mother is a mix of Chinese and Hawaiian, catered to this stupidity and issued an apology.
Seriously, WTF is wrong with people? There are enough legitimate things in the world to be angry and upset over that you don't need to go hunting for them. I mean, this is just moronic. A bit disappointing that he caved to this and apologized, but it's probably easier to do that then explain to stupid people that they are being stupid.
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?
