Larry Bowa is a jackass

Not that it is news or anything, but Larry Bowa is a jackass, with his behavior yesterday being the latest example...

BALTIMORE - When Corey Patterson stole second and third in the seventh inning with the Orioles leading by six runs Larry Bowa believed Patterson was rubbing it in the Yankees' nose.
From the top step of the third base dugout, Bowa let Patterson have it.

"I told him to play the game the right way," Bowa said. "That was terrible."

Patterson said he didn't know if a six-run bulge would hold up.

"I guess he didn't appreciate me taking third base, basically. I can't repeat what he said," Patterson said of Bowa. "I even checked with some people before the inning. If I get on, what should I do, how should I play it out. I got the go-ahead."

Of course...everyone knows that the Yankees could never come back from a 6 run deficit.

I agree with Phil Garner's take:

"At what point is the game over?" Garner asked. "If the other teams stop hitting homers we'll stop stealing bases."
