Could Jim Leyland be any different from Colin Kaepernick?

Last night, Team USA dominated Puerto Rico 8-0 to win the World Baseball Championship for the first time. Leyland, 72, the Hall of Fame-bound manager and baseball lifer who came out of retirement to manage the U.S. team got emotional in a post-game interview.

To CBS Sports blogger R.J. Anderson, Colin Kaepernick will do just fine if he never plays football again. On the other hand, when Tim Tebow resumes life as a professional athlete he will do so as a "divider."

One never ceases to be amazed at just how low the left-stream media will go to denigrate President Donald Trump. Aaron Dodson, a writer for ESPN’s The Undefeated blog, went all the way to the ground to promote a gutter level attack on the Republican executive in chief. Part of a recurring series of stories on athletic sneakers, Dodson’s caustic post is a direct attack on American veterans as well.

Colin Kaepernick is a free agent and the chirping of crickets is deafening amid the silence among NFL general managers. One anonymous GM, quoted by The Mercury News, suspects the lack of interest shown in the controversial quarterback stems from the fear of fan backlash or hate for the former 49er who refused to stand for the national anthem last season.

Let the seller beware. Buyers aren’t buying what they’re offering. I’m speaking of sports reporting. Sports writers jumping into the realm of the political are admitting that much of the public disagrees with their hard-left editorializing. But they are stubbornly turning up the volume and focusing on Trump-bashing and supporting illegal immigration, the transgender movement, Black Lives Matter and other left-wing causes.

Dear Mr. Woody Johnson:

I understand that your ball club is in serious need of a winning QB, and I am writing to apply for the job. Your quarterbacking in 2017 certainly left a lot to be desired, and when I opted out of my contract today, I immediately identified the New York Jets as my destination of choice. I am the logical solution to your quarterbacking problem. As you’ll see in my online resume, I have six years of experience as an NFL quarterback.

There is no shortage of media criticism of professional athletes, but David Fleming’s ESPN.com attack on Tim Tebow has re-written the standards of mean-spiritedness. In a post dripping with malice, sarcasm and anti-Christian bigotry, “Tim Tebow’s relentless pursuit of failure,” Fleming has taken Tebow Derangement Syndrome to a level not previously thought attainable.

In his Monday New York Times column, Paul Krugman descended deeper into Democratic hackery, advocating the public shunning of those who would dare interact with the President of the United States, with a strong whiff of the authoritarianism he supposedly sees and opposes in the Trump regime: “The Uses of Outrage.” Krugman has read his left-wing Twitter feed and is on board opposing the “normalization” of the dictator Donald, to the point of encouraging the shunning of anyone who would interact with the president of the United States.

On Monday's New Day, liberal CNN co-host Chris Cuomo got into a heated debate with conservative CNN political commentator and talk radio host Ben Ferguson over the issue of a high school girl who identifies as a boy who was barred from wrestling with boys and so chose to wrestle girls instead. As the debate shifted to the issue of transgender bathroom policy, Cuomo not only accused conservatives of "scarring" transgenders and causing an increase in suicide by not allowing them to do what they choose to do, but he also mocked those who fear the possibility of girls having "genitals waved in their face" by men intruding into women's restrooms.

When a major social issues brouhaha recently erupted in Texas, it was all too predictable that Big Media would push hard in support of its LGBT activist friends. The big T – for transgender – in this case.

Earlier this week, Baltimore Orioles executive vice president and chief operating officer John Angelos said that he wouldn't want President Donald Trump to throw out the first pitch at his team's Camden Yards home opener until Trump "retract(s) all these outrageous things that have been said and simply apologize(s)." Most coverage of this story has failed to report that Angelos's father Peter is a longtime, heavy-contributing Democratic Party operative, while no one has questioned John's disingenuous claim of non-partisanship.

Politicizing sports -- it’s not just for ESPN anymore! No longer seeing sports as a respite from politics, the New York Times has joined the game of pestering and trying to pin down athletes suspected of secret anti-Trump tendencies, while celebrating supporters of illegal immigrants and Black Lives Matter protests: "Of the 56 players polled, 50 -- or 89.3 percent -- said they would play golf with Trump if asked....The results were hardly surprising. The clubhouses at PGA Tour stops have long trended Republican, and the sport’s target demographic -- rich, mostly white men -- is far different from the women, minorities, immigrants and Muslims who have at times been the most offended by the president’s statements and positions."
