If being dumb is a reason to lose your job (much like Melky Cabrera‘s idiotic tendencies) then ESPN’s Rick Sutcliffe might want to get out of the line of fire. Sutcliffe, a former Cy Young winner and Padres TV analyst who now works for ESPN as a color commentator is more known for his bonehead decisions than his three All-Star Game appearances. One of his more well known mishaps was his drunken fueled rage during a 2006 Padres broadcast on San Diego’s channel 4, where Sutcliffe was invited back to his former stomping grounds – promptly turdburglering all over them.
Never one to miss an opportunity to place a cleat in his mouth, the 1979 Rookie of the Year award winner appeared on Dave Rothenberg’s show on ESPN radio and had some choice opinions about suspended Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera, namely the fact that he feels Cabrera should be deported:
“You know, it makes you mad. First of all, this guy is over here in the United States on a working visa. He broke the law. What’s he doing still here? I mean, forget the 50-game suspension from baseball and whether he can come back if they make the players [sic] or not. Why’s he still here? That visa should be taken away, and he should not be allowed to play over here again, or work over here again, in my opinion.”
Understanding what a can of worms was just opened, Rothenberg quickly moved on to discussing the fake website in attempts to avoid having Sutcliffe fall further down the hole he just dug up.
Sutcliffe and his upstanding morality was unavailable to comment on whether or not he should’ve went to the clinker for driving drunk to that said ’06 Padres game.
