Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

JIM TRACY, TOBACCO ENTHUSIAST

No one would argue that Jim Tracy has been anything but a revelation since taking over as manager of the Rockies. He's taken a team from the NL West basement into pole position for the NL Wild Card, and he's done it with exactly the same players. He really has been a role model for managerial leadership. Unfortunately, as this hyper-zoomed AP photo attests, he's not quite as convincing a role model for young baseball players, considering the fact that he has a big, fat lip full of tobacco while sitting behind the dugout screen. If he's been doing that throughout his playing and managerial career, it's amazing he still has his entire cheek in tact. (AP/David Zalubowski)

This article by Alan Dershowitz on beanballs and suspensions deserves its own thread and comment from the Insiders.
