Ron Washington’s profanity laced tirade before Game 7 of the 2011 World Series has been leaked on the internet, and by all measures has been creating a buzz.  Realistically, I am not sure why this is news, however I am guilty by reporting on it.  According to Yahoo Sports, the organization has launched an investigation to find the employee who leaked it.
