via YouTube Tigers’ skipper Jim Leyland isn’t the only one who likes to light up in the dugout.  Thanks to a Michigan smoking ban back in 2010, Leyland has to find another way to fulfill his urge. Rangers manager Ron Washington is more fortunate (if you can call it that). On Sunday the camera caught Wash mid-puff. Our legal team is checking out whether Washington was breaking any laws at the time. But our human element tells us that the dugout is no place to be blowing nastiness in peoples’ faces.  Of course, we know about Washington’s past cocaine problems, so at least this is a lesser form of addiction.  But it still doesn’t belong in the dugout. Get the patch, Ron.

  • Seriously, you are going to put your legal team on an incident like this? He's a grown man, if he wants to puff on a cig in a big stadium, let him. If your concerned with the health of the players in the dugout, last time I checked they are all adults and could say something to the coach about his smoking bothering them and besides they make plenty of money to afford decent health insurance!!!! You're legal team needs to get a life!
  • He can't smoke but they can all chew that nasty smelling gross looking tobacco? really!!! come on....its his choice and more power to him for enjoying it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! smoke 'em if you got 'em
  • This is just a stupid subject. He's a grown man. Years ago it looked like the dugout was on fire with all the guys smoking. Put your legal team on something worthwhile like finding Manti Teo's girlfriend.
  • As Wash the Great once said; "that's the way baseball go" FN idoit.

Several teams interested in Bucs' No. 1 overall pick?

Not too long ago, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would select former Heisman winner Jameis Winston with the first overall pick in this week’s NFL draft. While that may still very well be the case, there are some suggestions out there that the brass in Tampa isn’t exactly sold on Winston’s character. Potentially related to those suggestions...
