"A Nice Club"
In following my favorite sports teams, one thing I like to do is pay close attention to what the opposing columnists, beat writers, players and managers say about my teams. To me, there is more truth in those statements, especially when made after the game. The law reflects this, as the rules of evidence exclude statements by a party-opponent from the definition of hearsay.
Anyway, I'd like to offer as Nats Blog Exhibit 1, a statement by a Mr. Ned Yost, manager, Milwaukee Brewers:
"That team, over there?" Yost said, gesturing with his thumb toward the
Nationals' clubhouse. "That's a nice club. A nice club. They play the
game right. They don't make mistakes. And they're tough."
Of course, there is impeachment evidence against Yost: He is the man who intentionally walked Cristian Guzman.
