So Jeremy Guthrie wore that shirt that, in about the mildest terms possible, dissed the Orioles. And then he apologized for it on Twitter. Which, apparently, wasn’t enough, because then he went and apologized for it in a press conference today.
Give me a break. Since when are we requiring apologies for slights so small they barely qualify on the slight radar?
As it is, here’s a study in contrasts in the reaction to all of this. Pick your sides. This:

Guthrie’s shirt has become an issue for the media. The media has no business criticizing a guy like this for wearing a tshirt
