Elephants in Oakland become a Jim Mecir excuse factory? And why?
Mecir is forced-into-the-closer-role? Boo-hoo-hoo! Let us know when he is forced to play shortstop. A's manager Ken Macha is a "jackass" who should be "cursed until he bleeds from the mouth?" I am not a Macha fan, but what exactly is the poor guy supposed to do with a bullpen full of pitchers who blow leads?
People pick on Mecir because he's a cripple? Yeah, and everyone who calls Arthur Rhodes "Queen Arthur" does so because they hate blacks. Free clue: No one cares his favorite team's players' handicaps or skin colors or religion or anything else. All they care about is whether they play well.
