Jim Leyland Pulls Dreaded “Stinkpalm” On Ron Washington
"Stinky Jim" Leyland strikes again! And this time, it appears that Rangers manager Ron Washington was on the receiving end of his gamey trickery.
These AP photos, which were taken during batting practice prior to Game 5 of the ALCS, show the Tigers manager with his hand very clearly down his pants while he talks to Washington. The two men then appear to share a firm-looking handshake, which means... Stinky Jim got him with the Stinkpalm.
We'd hate to be Washington's hand right about now. You see, Jim Leyland subscribes to the "old prospector" school of hygiene: during a late-season 12-game win streak, he refused to change his underwear.
“I will wear these underwear until we lose,” he said to reporters at the time. “I can tell you that right now. And they will not be washed. And I don’t give a shit who knows it.”
