After Major League Baseball clarified that teams would not be banned from drinking beer in the clubhouses during games, Joe Maddon expressed annoyance that the idea was even considered at all.â†µ
Do we sell beer in the ballpark? These people who attend the games have a much greater chance of becoming drunk by the time they leave than a baseball player does [...] If they want to start pulling beers out of clubhouses they better start pulling them out of ballparks, too, because that's a higher percentage chance of something going awry.
For absolutely no reason at all, I'm envisioning how Bobby Valentine would react to such a compromise of his liberties. "Mr. Valentine, the glasses and mustache don't change anything. No beer in the clubhouse." He takes a sip of his beer. "I'm the governor! You're fired!"
