    This was just lame humor. Remy was attempting to bust his chops. But even that is difficult with Lowell, who's as far from arrogant as they get. And no one knows that better than Remy.

    Posted by harness[/QUOTE] Whether he ws serious or not only he will ever know, but it is funny whether Remy meant it or not/ If he meant it is funny because he is going to have to deal with this now because he got caught with a live mic and the feed to MLB TV coming back before NESN did and if he wasn't it is funny because he is going to have to go through the same she-it.

    It sure as heck isn't a big deal. If he thinks Lowell is jerk, who cares. He dealt with him more than anybody here.

    Let's play ball...

    Not at all.  I happened to hear it on the NESN broadcast through mlb.com between innings.  I'm sure a number of other posters will claim they heard it like that too. 

    You're a piece of work, echo.  A real piece of work.

Is there a job waiting for you at the Enquirer for raking up muck? Do you ever post here on other topics?

    If Mikey really is an arrogant jerk, then it makes sense that he was softy's "favorite player" before 2010.

    Re: Remy Calls Mike Lowell an arrogant athlete..

    Whether or not it was sarcasm on Remy's part or he said exactly what he thought of Lowell, I don't think Remy owes anyone an apology. We are such a pathetic society of "oh no, you didn't say that did you???" Always asking for athletes to apologize for making any kind of an off-color comment at any race, religion, sex, etc...This goes back to Campanis interview with Koppel when Al was clearly drunk on the air and then lost his job over ignorant black comments. Or when the bombastic Jimmy the Greek lost his job for citing an actual fact about slaveowners and how slaves were "breeded" a certain way. Oh my god, those racists!!!!! Whatever. Or how many times has an announcer or a writer been suspended or lost a job over dumb comments, including Bob Ryan for a comment on the Rutgers women's basketball team. We get it. We have all become Thumper in Bambi: If you don't have nothing nice to say, don't say nothing at all.....whatever. And I'm sure I'll be called racist for bringing this stuff up. When Tiger Woods or Kobe Bryant made some dumb remarks, they too were thrown under a bus or fined. It's ridiculous. A society of politically correctness even if behind closed doors most never even practice it.

    That's funny.
    But if Lowell were really as depicted, he sure fooled countless team mates who consider him a life-long friend. If I had to make the call between him and Remy, I'd put my bread on Lowell.

    And I'd prefer Bill Lee over Eck in the booth. Lee would always give you a different shade.

    I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic, folks. That is why Orsillo was laughing so much. It was funny, at least to the two of them, because Lowell is one of the last people you'd say that about. By all accounts, Lowell is one of the nicest guys in recent memory in MLB, everyone loves his kids, and even his wife is a nice and wonderful person. Remy wasn't being fake when Lowell was in the booth the other night; I'm pretty sure that they have a good relationship. The on-air "uh oh, I didn't the mic was on" comments I think were just one friend razzing the other friend sarcastically. Arrogant would be to throw the pitch out and then book it, and what Lowell did was the opposite of that. In the video, you can see he is enjoying the game with his kids. Remy was being sarcastic.

    I'm sorry I missed this. I must have had it muted between innings or went to the fridge or something. Surely Remy wouldn't say that about Lowell, but I also agree with some of the other posters. Remy wears a little thin sometimes, so you just never know. I liked Eck a lot better. Eck is one of the best color guys in all of baseball in my opinion.

    Re: Remy Calls Mike Lowell an arrogant athlete..

    The reason I think he was joking was because here was Mike Lowell after throwing out the first pitch -- and was it also after they had done their in-game interview? -- and he was in the stands having fun with kids. Most celebs who throw out the first pitch bolt before the bottom of the first. That was what I think Remy was doing. Am I certain of that? Nope. But I think that's it ... and given that Lowell was doing absolutely nothing that would lead one to call him "arrogant," that makes sense.

    Well, I can think of worse societies. If everybody said what they thought, this society would have disintegrated years ago. As a people, we find it tough enough to deal with the truth about ourselves. So, what does it say about deflecting this inability toward others?

    Lee is blatantly honest. It's not a matter of loose lips, which are the result of attempts to conceal.
    Lee couldn't give a sh*t about the consequences. He isn't one to compromise himself. Thus, he has nothing to lose.
