>Baseball announcer, and former player, Tim McCarver has continued his slow descent into madness.  Here is a direct quote from McCarver during a Yankees-Rays game earlier this season (thanks to Deadspin for the transcription).

You remember some of those despotic leaders in World War II, primarily in Russia and Germany, where they used to take those pictures that they had … taken of former generals who were no longer alive, they had shot ’em. They would airbrush the pictures, and airbrushed the generals out of the pictures. In a sense, that’s what the Yankees have done with Joe Torre. They have airbrushed his legacy. I mean, there’s no sign of Joe Torre at the stadium. And, that’s ridiculous. I don’t understand it.

 That’s right, McCarver compared the Yankees to WWII-era Russia and Germany.  I guess we can tell where McCarver stands on the Yankees-Red Sox-evil empire feud.

When an imaginary BLB reporter went to ask the Yankees’ front office about McCarver’s quote, he was never seen again.
