This Is Why I'm Here...

Some blogs exist exclusively to tear up poor sports journalism. Some offer analysis or opinions. I try to do a little bit of these things... but when it all comes down to it, the real reason I'm here is to help spread the news when a former Japanese Import pitcher gets loaded up and actually managed to embarrass himself worse than when he pitched!

Yup, you guessed it. Hideki Irabu got arrested for mugging a bartender.

Irabu, 39, became angered after his credit card was rejected. He allegedly pushed the bartender against the wall, pulled his hair and smashed at least nine liquor bottles. The bartender sustained no injuries.

Apparently Irabu threw the bottles, thus explaining how none of them hit the bartender.

For what it's worth saying, if Irabu showed this much initiative in New York, Steinbrenner would never have called him a fat toad.

There's no word on whether the 20 mugs of beer Irabu chugged down are part of a comeback attempt on "The David Wells Diet."
