Vin Scully officially senile

The oh-so-arrogant Vin Scully, the over-rated apologist for Dodger incompetence, has just invented a story for TV viewers on the LA telecast. According to Vin, Bonds was signed for this year because the Giants' sales people wanted to keep Bonds and they won out over the Giants baseball people, who wanted to let him go.

As best I can tell from Vinnie's overbearing babbling, he apparently inferred this from the January letter in January that Peter Magowan sent to fans after the signing. Of course, the letter says nothing of the sort -- it says they've signed Bonds because he still can play, that they're aware of the fans' concerns about him and that the team's gotten younger than it was last year.

It's not the first time Vin has decided that it's acceptable to lie on the air.

Again, it's no wonder why Dodger fans are so stupid after listening Vin The Senile Liar for 50 years. The only reason I can guess as to why Scully is accorded this sanctified reputation stems from the predominance of even worse announcers such as the Cards' Mike Shannon, the Astros' Milo Hamilton and the Padres awful duo of Jerry Coleman and Ted Leitner -- the worst ever.

Vin -- do us all a favor and retire, you liar.
