I fully understand that. The world keeps progressing. Few things remain the same.
The days of a manager publicly chastising a player are long gone. We’ll never see another moment like what happened in the Pittsburgh Pirates’ spring training camp in 1991 when Jim Leyland got in Barry Bonds’ face in front of the entire team, a group of media members and fans.
And that’s fine because there are more civilized ways of doing things.
Yet one thing that should never go out of style is accountability and the 2022 version of the Pirates have a problem with that.
