Not Razinski.
Sometimes I wonder if Tony didn't just have a brain meltdown that night and the words he was thinking didn't match what he was saying.

I could see that in August.

I bet on some levels, this is his biggest middle finger ever, you know?
Middle finger to who(m)? The players that won him another World Series (with his help and sometimes despite his "help", of course)

...if the players were thinking what most of us here were thinking, I think Tony really did have a tough year with his in-game managment.

I'm sure the number will be reserved for scrappy white middle infielders until that day comes, however.
