    Sad to say but it is time for Frank to leave baseball. I will always enjoy what he did for the game. It is a shame that steroids have ruined some records that he had held. Frank you are a all time great and will be sorely missed.

    There was a great Boswell column on this the other day. I'll see if I can find it.

    THIS being the thread idea, dumbass.

    (and if Boswell wrote a column on shame vs. ashamed, I'd read it.)

    Really, people, this isn't about "a shame" and "ashamed."

    Frank Robinson has been treated pretty damn shabbily for a guy who took over this team when nobody wanted it and guided it into semi-respectability.

    He deserves better.

    Ya know, I posted this LAST NIGHT on the baseball thread, and included a link. Nice job by Barry Svrluga on getting the story. And shame on the Nats for letting everyone find out "hey, we don't know how to can our manager yet, but we're going to." Good job though, to Barry.

    Yeah, but we like Indians Network more better.

    And Shotty, he does deserve better, but he didn't have to say yes when asked... It's bad enough managing under most owners. But when you're owned by MLB as a whole???

    Here's the Boswell column. Use bugmenot if you don't have a WaPo account.

    Well, the story didn't actually quote anyone but unnamed sources, which had been saying pretty much the same thing for awhile. They're not even saying it now, although it's pretty clear.

    I'm not a big fan of Frank's, for personal reasons, but those doofi in D.C. really needed to treat him a whole lot better than this, not leave him basically asking them through the media to give him an answer. That was beneath him. But he wanted back, and he especially wanted his 2007 salary, so you can't blame a guy for asking when the execs are giving him the cold shoulder. No class.

    Sorry, I'm having trouble working up warm and fuzzy feelings for Frank Robinson.
