Episode V: Offerman Strikes Back

Maybe Jose Offerman should pick up some sort of winter sport like skiing or curling or something, because he sure as hell won't be anywhere near a baseball diamond from November to March. Offerman last suited up in the MLB for the New York Mets in the 2005 season, so it was almost inevitable that his career was going to go downhill faster than kids racing in a soapbox derby.

We all remember his first outburst in August, 2007, when Offerman charged the mound against the Bridgeport Bluefish, armed and dangerous with 33oz of pine, and gave a serious beatdown to both the pitcher and catcher after being hit by a fastball. Now the manager of the Licey Tigers in the Dominican Winter League, Offerman went off faster than the Mike O'Malley show when his catcher was tossed out for arguing balls and strikes. He came screaming out of the dugout, and immediately got in base umpire, Daniel Rayburn's face. After giving him a few pieces of his mind, Offerman made sure Rayburn was listening to cracking him in the mouth/neck area. It took the league president less than 24 hours to decide that Offerman would be completely banned from the winter league. At this point, Offerman could be slated to be the next villain in the third Batman movie.
