PTI guys rip on Bowa

Larry Bowa was a topic of discussion on PTI this afternoon, and oh my did they rip on him. It started off with Michael Wilbon saying how he was tired of seeing him acting like this, and only got worse. Tony Kornheiser then called him a "clown" and someone "who needs to act his age." Kornheiser correctly pointed out how a 62-year-old man would never be allowed to act this way at work, and his job as a 3rd base coach does not give him the right to behave in that manner.

Overall, it was quite the hatchet job. But, like I've said before, I really have a hard time defending Bowa on this one. He just snapped out of nowhere as if he was still a manager. Maybe an incident like this will finally calm him down, but knowing his temper, who knows if that will ever last.

The real funny thing to all of this is that Bowa worked for ESPN a couple of years ago before joining Joe Torre's staff with the Yankees. That still didn't stop Wilbon and Kornheiser from ripping him apart.
