For someone that talks about professional baseball for a living he’s probably talked about the Negro Leagues multiple times.

With the ease that he said the other word it’s obvious that it’s not new to his vocabulary either.

He should definitely lose his job. The Oakland A’s are a wrap anyway I doubt if that dude was going to Vegas.
