Classic DeWayne Staats: Cliftonesque In 1991

Flipping around this weekend after I got back from the Boston shenanigans, I landed on an ESPN Classic broadcast of Rickey Henderson running wild on the Yankees in 1991.  Calling the game for MSG Network was a young DeWayne Staats.  While Staats is still a very handsome man as he broadcasts Devil Ray games on FSN Florida and Sun Sports, as you can see below he was truly a vision back in the day.


Now that Staats is so closely associated with a championship team/baseball’s greatest franchise, it’s sad to think back on him toiling for five years calling games for some truly terrible Yankee teams from 1990-1994.  On the other hand, for everyone punching a clock at a shit job in a dirty, smelly workplace, Staats should be an inspiration, showing to what heights one can rise even after such lowly beginnings.

    What championship team? The Rays??? They are the worst franchise in modern baseball history. There is no one else close to the putridness of the team from the toxic park called the Trop (or let’s just call it the Crap – a better name for the park and team). Rays almost swept against the Phils, so there is no, repeat no, championship there for the Rays. Not in your wildest dreams.

    Perhaps you are so steamed about being shut down by Joba for 8 innings tonight, or losing 2 out of 3 to the team from that so-called dump in the Bronx, or maybe its falling back 7.5 games, that these facts has impacted your sense of reality. Or maybe its David Price’s ridiculous ERA of 5.60, a sad comparison to Joba (3.86 before tonight’s masterpiece) and Hughes (3.43)

    Rays and championship team? That is only the work of a delusional fantasy. Call for Chalk on line one – reality calling.

    For what you pay – douchabg, chest-thumping, front-runner douche fuckhead – you should be ashamed at anything less than 120+ wins. 75 Million more than the next best team? Ridiculous!!!! Rooting for the Yankees is like taking a trip to Vegas and rooting for the house: YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO WIN YOU DOUCHBAG FUCKNUT TURDLICKER!!!!!

    Now, get the fuck out, do the world a favor and plop a .38 slug in your head. ASSBAG!!!

    Man, I cannot believe how seriously people take Chalk’s tongue-in-cheek homerism.

    Nobody takes him seriously, everybody just hates him. It’s different.
