>Bravo’s newest reality show is in full swing right now in the lovely city of Baltimore.  Perhaps you’ve heard of it?  It’s called Top Scapegoat, and it is focusing on the hiring of a new manager for the Baltimore Orioles.  The format is unlike anything reality television has done before.  In this game, the most qualified contestants decide to go home.  None of this “please pack your knives and go.”  No, “rose ceremony.”  The candidates themselves, after looking at ownership and the prospect of guiding the Orioles through the AL East, remove themselves from consideration.

Balitmore’s owner, Peter Angelos: “We are striving to be the absolute worst team in baseball, and we’ve put ourselves in a good position over the years to be unable to compete in the AL East.  Our problem has been that we’ve had a string of managers that are actually trying to win with these guys.  It seems like every year we have to start all over again.  It’s hard being on bottom.”
