Great Moments in Idiocy

Remember earlier today when we wrote about the two exciting new hires by the Houston Astros? How we sort of praised the Astros (the Astros!) for hiring smart people with expensive brains and diverse experiences? That was fun.

You know what isn’t fun? Reducing an accomplished lawyer with experience in two Major League front offices to “a former cheerleader.” That isn’t fun. At all. Actually, it’s baloney. The very worst kind.

Unfortunately that is the tack taken by Stan McNeal the Sporting News. Which is deeply unfortunate. Maybe head over to his twitter and let him know that isn’t the kind of thing you want to read in 2012. Which is the actual year, right now. Crazy.

Hat tip to @emmaspan, whose original tweet is below the jump.
