Please Stop Interviewing Managers In Dugout While They Are Working

I wish  the various television networks broadcasting the baseball playoff games would stop interviewing the managers in the dugout while the game is taking place.

Above you see Texas Ranger manager Ron Washington being interviewed recently while his team was playing in the postseason.

These people are working and these games are not exhibitions.

I think all interviews with managers and coaches while the game is taking place are a bad idea.

Let these people work and leave them alone to think stuff out.

Okay—I’ve covered this subject that has been annoying me for a long time.

That I can vent on these minor matters is a good thing about having a blog.

  1. Totally agree with you. Why any manager agrees to this is beyond me – which makes me wonder if it’s an MLB requirement. Those folks have requirements, mandatories, restrictions up the kazoo.

    Also see it being done with football coaches and jockeys on the way to the gate before a major race is won. None of it strikes me as smart.
