Drew’s Morning Dish — Tues., April 23

I said during Monday’s edition of The D&L Window Tinting Morning Reaction I’d wait to hear some details on the latest Rolando McClain arrest before judging him and his future with the Ravens.

I’m ready to judge him.

See ya.

All I had to hear was the account of his arrest to know, for sure, this guy doesn’t deserve the privilege of playing in the NFL and earning $700,000.

“F**k the police!” he yelled on several occasions late Sunday afternoon when Huntsville, Alabama police were called to the scene of a gathering of approximately 700 people in a park.

Only an idiot yells something like that as law enforcement officials are trying to keep the peace.

It’s one thing if the cops show up and McClain is playing Jay-Z’s “The Black Album” too loud or he’s taking a leak behind someone’s car and they run him in for that.

I’d shrug my shoulders on those accounts and say, “OK, those things don’t make him a bad guy.”

When the police show up to do their job and you’re the clown that yells “F**k the police!” in an attempt to rally the crowd, you’re a bad guy.

If I’m the Ravens, I discontinue his employment today.  Period.

And if the Ravens don’t cut this goof, they’re showing a lack of integrity.  Period.

——————————————————————-

The Tampa Bay Rays traded away James Shields and Wade Davis in the off-season in part because they have two young studs named Matt Moore and Alex Cobb waiting in the wings.

Well, Moore isn’t “waiting” in 2013.

He’s arrived.

After last night’s 5-1 win over the Yankees, Moore is now 4-0 on the season with a 1.04 ERA and 0.92 WHIP.

He’s allowed 10 hits all season.

His walk numbers (14) aren’t great, but more than half of those have come in the first three innings of his starts.  Once he gets settled down, it’s lights out.

I found this new band that’s really good.

I don’t think they’re “new”, per-se, just new to me.

Anyway, give them a listen if you want.

They’re called Dawes — and RIGHT HERE is a song you can check out.

Here’s a fun little riddle for you.

There are three Philadelphia Flyers fans in a car.  Tommy, wearing a Danny Briere #48 jersey, is the guy with the three tickets to the game.  Ray, wearing his old school Bobby Clarke #16 jersey, is the last guy to enter the car.  John, like Tommy, has his Briere jersey on and he’s sitting next to a window.

Got it?

OK, here’s the question…

Who’s driving?

    Drew – I usually agree with you, but on the subject of Rolando McClain, I differ. Ozzie and the front office have earned the benefit of the doubt on personnel. McClain has barely begun to be a Raven, what ever the front office and coaches have planned to try and rework him into their mold, it hasn’t happened yet. They knew he was a knucklehead when they signed him, so I can only assume they must think it’s worth trying to reform him. I would say he’s on double secret probation, on his second strike or what have you, but not done yet.

    unreformable

    i have to side with you here, drew. it seems like he could be more trouble than he’s worth, and avoiding the downside is part of player analysis, i guess. also, thanks for the band tip, i’ll check ‘em out.
