Skip Bayless has done it again. It has come to our attention that on "First and 10" last week, Skip suggested that Tony La Russa had "set the stage" for Josh Hancock's DUI-related death by committing the same offense during spring training.
There is no question that La Russa exercised poor judgment and made a huge mistake with his actions in Florida. However, the idea of publicly laying blame on a man for the death of another person--especially one whom La Russa cared a lot about--is beyond Bayless's normal buffoonery. That crosses the line into the realm of irresponsible. Most people in the media understand the power of their words, but Skip has proven here that he is incapable of distinguishing between thought-provoking commentary and abandoning human decency.
