ESPN blowhard Colin Cowherd has been sent packing after he made some disparaging remarks about Dominicans a few days ago.
“I mean, the Marlins put a general manager in their dugout. People freaked out. You know, like, “Whoa!” It’s baseball. You don’t think a general manager can manage? Like it’s impossible? The game is too complex? Like, I’ve never bought into that. “Baseball’s too complex.” Really? A third of the sport is from the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic is not been known, in my lifetime, as having, you know, world-class academic abilities. I mean, a lot of those kids come from rough backgrounds, and have not had opportunities academically that other kids from other countries have. Baseball’s like any sport. It’s mostly instincts.
After much pressure from the MLBPA, ESPN, who had chosen not to re-sign Cowherd, figured it was best to let him go now and not wait until his contract expired.
“Colin Cowherd’s comments over the past two days do not reflect the values of ESPN or our employees. Colin will no longer appear on ESPN.”
He’s now Fox’s problem to deal with.
