During tonight’s Giants-Yankees game, play-by-play man Thom Brennaman brought up Omar Vizquel’s recent quote about the possibility of him being traded. To paraphrase, Vizquel said he would be amenable to a trade if he could play full-time with his new team. Otherwise, he’d prefer to stay put.

Brennaman latched on to Vizquel’s stance. Paraphrased:

Brennaman: “Knowing Omar Vizquel as we do, we know he’s not a selfish guy. But what I’m saying is this – if you read that quote in the newspaper, he comes across as selfish.”

Girardi: “You’re right; Omar is not selfish. This is a guy who has 200 sacrifice bunts in his career.”

Sacrifice bunts ≠ moral character.
