This clip starts out as any good old ribbing. Last night Scott Reiss was throwing it to Steve Phillips for one of those stupid mini field demos on Baseball Tonight when things got just a tad uncomfortable. Steve was supposed to be doing a piece on Kosuke Fukudome, but Reiss decided rub Steve's career in his face during the transition.
The joke is pretty funny, but there's one problem. Reiss calls Fukudome, Akinori Iwamura....
The look on John Kruk's face before the tension is priceless but the toss back after the schooling from Phillips is even better. Rule #1 when making fun of someone. Don't botch the lead up before the punchline....they'll jump all over you. And also, that was a pretty messed up dig at Phillips if you ask me.
Oh and Reiss....
Fukudome (OF)- Chicago Cubs (National League)
Iwamura (IF)- Tampa Bay (American League)
