Found April 22, 2013 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
PLAYERS: Jim Leyland
TEAMS: Detroit Tigers

Via It's Always Sunny in Detroit:

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.

Ron Washington Will Smoke a Cigarette In The Dugout If He Wants To

I haven’t seen a MLB coach smoke a cigarette in the dugout for some time, but it has happened and Ron Washington the always fun manager of the Nationals is the culprit.  As ‘It’s Always Sunny In Detroit‘ points out, Jim Leyland was the last manager to light up and that was in 2010.  No judgement here Ron, just be careful as the kiddos around the world may see this.

Anatomy of two really bad starts

Rick Porcello of the Tigers and Philip Humber of the Houston Astros both made starts yesterday for their respective teams.

Now that, folks, is a bad day. Let us start with Rick Porcello. Porcello...

Detroit Tigers week in review: week 3

Ron Washington Caught Smoking In Dugout During Game (Video)

    RELAX! It’s not quite what you may have thought initially. Yes, Ron Washington has a very long history of drug abuse, but never fear, it was just a cigarette…at least that’s kinda what it appears to be. Washington’s a pretty old school guy so there’s been speculation that the cigarette was hand rolled, hence the irregular look to it. Tv cameras popped the Texas...
