If Bernie is right about this, Matheny should be fired.  Today.

I really hope that Bernie is just pulling this out of his *ss.

"There are Mike Guys and there are guys who aren't quite Mike Guys. After being deemed unready for membership in the Mike Guy Club in spring training, Taveras made sure to conduct himself humbly during his stay in the majors, and was making nice progress in becoming a Mike Guy.

If Oscar continues to conduct himself humbly and if he continues to show respect for his elders and for the game, and if he continues to hustle out grounders to earn scrappy points ... presumably he will earn his "I'm a Mike Guy" card later in the season. "

Matheny really needs to get a clue. He was hired to be a clubhouse guy who creates positive environment for the development of young talent. Not to divide the clubhouse into Mike Guys and Not Mike Guys.
