Hoo boy, Lou. Way to shoot yourself in the foot with this one.
I'm trying to put this in context. The way he says it, I wonder if it's a jab at women or a jab at sportswriters in general, the people who secondguess him. (Does he feel that way about male sportswriters, too?) Good for Deborah Solomon to abandon ship before he got himself into more trouble. I want to argue knee-jerk "oh my god, this is an OUTRAGE!", but it's not like misogyny is new in sports, or something that'll go away soon.
I would be interested in hearing why he thinks that way, though. Because women don't play baseball? Or simply because women don't think the way men do and couldn't identify? I don't know, and I'm not sure what to say other than the way things are going on the Cubs right now, he'd be wise to keep his mouth shut.
