What happens in clubhouse, stays there: "It was my job to protect the team," Dave Dickenson said. "That's what I did." Dickenson said he would pour a cup of beer and place it in the dugout bathroom. The star player would sneak there between innings for a drink, and continue drinking throughout the game.

Piazza? No, beer. Forgive me, but it sounds like a cool job for a young guy. It also sounds like he had to routinely run around and work his ass off. That being said, if a guy like this ever did open up his mouth and write a tell-all book, it would probably make everyone throw up their hands and finally admit steroids are only one thing that can ruin the game's image. It kind of reminds me of the Jack Nicholson line in "A Few Good Men." "You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!" If baseball fans want to continue enjoying the game, then pay attention to what goes on ON the field. The more you dig around behind the scenes, the more the image you've created in your mind will dissolve.

Canned for not sucking up to the corporate snots, and for hanging with the "hired folk"...hmmm.

The only thing I ever do with beer in the bathroom does not involve ingesting it.
