Brad Ausmus, it’s time to fire your publicist

Right now is probably not the time a baseball player wants to see his picture plastered above a banner headline reading “Prime Targets” on ESPN’s baseball homepage. You’d think they could have come up with something better for an article on current players who’d make good managers. (And how about this for a doozy of a double-entendre subhed: “Where are baseball’s future managers? More than likely, they’re crouching at a ballpark near you. Jerry Crasnick explains.” Look out for tomorrow’s feature: “Headfirst: Where are tomorrow’s third-base coaches? More than likely, they already know when to dive between a catcher’s legs.” )

UPDATED: And…the Aumus story is already off ESPN’s homepage. Damn you, Greg Maddux and your 325 career wins!
