MLB somewhat apologizes for Francona uniform spot check

MLB Executive Vice President Jimmie Lee Solomon said that the timing was "unfortunate" that one of his employees decided to check during a game in New York if Boston manager Terry Francona was wearing a uniform top under his fleece top.

"...They should have used better judgment," Solomon said. "That does not negate the fact that Francona has not been wearing his uniform" jersey."

An MLB official checked yesterday at my apartment to see that my cat's litter box was officially licensed. At least that's what he said he was doing.

Has anyone seen my DVD player by the way?

why do managers HAVE to wear a uniform? when did this rule come into effect? what was so bad about the days when the manager wore a suit?

The managers have to wear a uniform if they want to go on the field. That's been a long standing rule in baseball. It probably goes back to the late 19th century.

The rule was invented as an excuse for Abner Doubleday to make obscene phone calls.

Tomorrow's lineup?

I think Kemp will sit against Peavy. He is, after all, inconsistent. And he hasn't proven himself. And he has halitosis.
