Make no mistake about it. San Francisco Giants CEO isn’t “stepping down.” He’s being involuntarily ousted. His cover up of the Barry Bonds fiasco has embarrassed his partners, the city of SF, and Giants baseball fans alike. Turns out [see the Mitchell Report] he was aware of the Bonds transgressions all along. “So what,?” you ask. Here’s what: We might as well have been watching pro wrestling for the past ten years. It is now impossible to fairly compare this generation of players to previous ones. The “record book” is no longer worth the paper that so rarely prints it.

When McGowan was in charge of Safeway it was company policy to paint the day old meat red to make it appear fresh. Ain’t no paint or deodorant that will cover the stench of your tenure as owner, meat.
