Trembley calls out "idiots"

Apparently Dave Trembley had quite a strong reaction to the fans who ran on the field last night. I know in the game thread people said the MASN coverage showed him yelling at them as they were escorted off the field, but he also went off about it after the game:

"That's embarrassing to baseball. It wasn't baseball," Trembley said. "I am a big proponent of respect and that's probably the epitome of disrespect when two idiots run out on the field like that. And what really bothered me is that they come up from behind two of my players, which ought to tell you a little about their backbone. Weak. Very weak."

Trembley went on to say that the fans were lucky that nobody on the field -- except the security guards -- took the matter into their own hands. He said that if things had been different, the situation could've had an ugly resolution.

"I wish I could have taken them in the back room," he said. "I would have kicked the snot out of both of them. I'm serious. You think I'm kidding you. I don't have any patience for disrespect. These guys bust their [rear] out there every night, and for two lunatics to come out there like that -- who do they think they are? Turn them over to us one time. I'll show them where the other side of the fence is. I believe in respect and common courtesy. Those two idiots last night did not show any of that."

Overall it's a somewhat humorous read while you're waiting out the rain delay.

Why? You don't think it's funny?

Depends on how you define the particular kind of funny. It delays the game, and is a direct violation of the contract you basically sign when you buy a ticket. I find it funny when they get taken out. I don't find it funny that drunken idiots think it's awesome to jump on to the field of play.

While I find streakers entertaining, I can understand that it must be unsettling for a player given that there have been incidents involving violent drunks instead of mirthful drunks. If your a player and you see some random guy running towards you your first thoughts are probably(or at least should be), "Weapon" and "Lawsuit"
