In the 8th inning of Sunday’s Diamondbacks-Dodgers game, color guy Mark Grace takes a few jabs at Dodgers reliever Hong-Chih Kuo for recently hitting the disabled list due to anxiety. Grace’s partner, Daron Sutton, appears (to my ear) to be a bit uneasy with the ribbing, but in my judgment doesn’t do enough to dissuade Grace from the path he is headed down. I have listened to these two a lot in the past (and generally enjoyed them, I might add) and I know they have a close enough relationship to where they can tell one another anything including “knock it off” if one is getting a bit out of line.
I felt this would have been one of those times. What do you think? Let me know on Twitter (@sporer) or in the comments.
Daron Sutton: Hong-Chih Kuo, to be specific, placed on the DL for an anxiety disorder.
Mark Grace: What was the problem? Making too much money?
DS: I don’t think so.
MG: Playing major league baseball for a living… that’s high anxiety… man, I dunno if I’d be able to handle that.
DS: Well you actually did.
MG: (softly) That’s what I’m saying.
(h/t to @HJBosch21 for letting me know about it. I wasn’t watching this game at the time & I’d have been watching Vin if I was.)
