Commemorate Jim Leyland’s Career by Watching Him Curse Out Barry Bonds

Video

With Jim Leyland stepping down as manager of the Tigers, fans are rushing to remember the best moments of his likely-concluded career. Nobody’s going to beat Will Leitch, though, who tweeted the above video of then-Pirates manager Leyland telling then-Pirate Barry Bonds that the legendary manager was sick of the legendary hitter’s crap.

This was the best you could do to "commemorate" Jim Leyland's career? 

He was one of the best managers in baseball over the past decade, took teams to the playoffs many times, was respected around the league for his class and smarts. Yet this is what you chose to represent his career?

Hey, there goes an ambulance around the corner. Don't you want to go chase it?

Leland was the manager, and Bonds, well,...... all know what he is.

True or false:  Bonds went on to become an even bigger jerk after this.  Like this really turned Bonds attitude around.

Bonds. Once a d***, always a d***. Love a manager that doesn't cater to the superstars. Absolutely loved this.
