It's never a good idea when pro ballplayers drift into the exciting and inflammatory world of social, political, or religious discussion. And, yes, I'd say the same if he was championing Che Guevara or something from the other side of the spectrum.
But I don't think he's endearing himself to the Oriole fanbase with some of these comments:
- President Obama not born in the United States
- Idolizes great American Ted Nugent
and, perhaps, worse - when talking about the second amendment drops "...but who has the highest crime rate in the country? Washington, D.C. "
Not only is he patently incorrect (D.C. is 16th) he's spewing misinformation about a town where LOTS of Oriole fans live!!
Luke, stick to baseball and hunting. This also goes for your interviews. Thanks.
