This Day in LSB History

Four years ago today, we discussed a piece by Jeff Pearlman that talked about baseball players' lack of interest in politics and had quotes from C.J. Wilson about the lack of interest in current affairs by most players.

In the comments you see the response to the article by a certain former Ranger pitcher who is now pitching for the Oakland A's.

I'm pretty sure that the comments section to this post included the famous "douchebag" comment by C.J. Wilson that led to all the controversy, but those comments were deleted, so I can't so for sure that this is the one. I'm pretty sure it is, though, as the whole thing blew up two days later.

The most irritating thing about that whole episode is that almost no one mentioned what Rangers website it was where douchebag-gate took place.
