    Seriously, you're wrong. His point about gender equality is not relevant to Ng's hire. Thirty years experience speaks for itself.

    And yet, she's a trailblazer just the same. Oh, the irony.

    About PC culture. Ng earned her job and the hiring is probably long overdue.

    Except what he did was akin to drinking a 12 pack and then complaining to the judge at his DUI arraignment that you used to be able to get away with that in the 1970s.

    The only thing he proved was his way of thinking is outmoded, and out of step in the 21st century. His issue isn't with PC culture. It's with himself.

    This has veered far away from baseball. If you want to talk politics, we have a places for that. Politics are not permitted outside of the delineated threads in JC.

    Regarding Kim Ng, whom we were discussing before the thread veered off course: There's a nice story about her in today's Times:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/18/s...i-marlins.html

    Kim Ng Has Been Ready for Years

    The pioneering baseball executive proved herself -- over and over -- for three decades. Several of her peers say they can't think of a more qualified first-time general manager.
    Come to think of it, maybe this belongs in the "Former Yankee Performance Thread"?
