    LaRussa accused JD of making a racist comment to Anderson.

    If that's true, I will be really bummed. I love the fire JD brings. I also love seeing teams that don't like each other.

    Tim Anderson called himself the modern day Jackie Robinson a couple years ago.

    Donaldson calls Tim Anderson, "Jackie" today.

    Anderson plays race card. Gotta love it.

    **** LaRussa. If that's what he said? It's a smart azz comment and that's it. It is not disparaging in any way, aside from making fun of Anderson

    I just don't seem him making a blatant racial slur. He take pride in being a leader and if he said something like that, alot of his current teammates would lose a lot of respect for him. I hope that it's not true

    That i completely can see him doing, JD saying it to get under the guys skin and try to distract him from the game on hand. Since he called himself the modern day Jackie Robinson, I really don't see JD calling him "Jackie" as a racist comment, maybe I'm wrong.

    I see that more as a dig toward Anderson thinking he is that caliber of a player and JD trying to get him out of his element. I see that more as a gamer, trying to get an advantage. Something JD has been very good at doing throughout his career.

    I thought it was interesting to know last yr when JD hit a HR of Giolito, yelling that the ball isn't sticky anymore. Makes a lot of sense why there has been tension between JD and the W Suxs since the 1st series this yr

    Taillon is now going to start game 1 tomorrow. I haven't heard who they plan on starting game 2, but with the injuries to Green and Gil opening up 40 man spots, it wouldn't surprise me if Wesneski got a call up soon to make a spot start

    Jackie Robinson is on a whole nother level of human being for what he had to go through and for how many doors he opened for so many people.

    My question is this. What makes Tim Anderson the “modern day Jackie Robinson?” If you’re going to give yourself a nickname that bears Jackie’s name, I’d like to know why? Tell us Tim what makes YOU the modern day Jackie Robinson?

    One more thing ,,,the only thing I hate worse than racism is the race card

    Make a story out of nothing. Anderson opened it up years ago.


    And one thing, Tim Anderson is not Jackie Robinson. That poor guy went through hell coming up to the Majors.

    There is no Tim Anderson if not for Jackie Robinson. Suggestin he is the modern day equivalent is an insult to Robinson's legacy.

    ^ agreed 100%

    My question is, how does he think or why does he think he's the modern day" Jackie" ?

    He certainly didn't go through the Hell Robinson did just to get a shot. If he's trying to compare himself as a player, he's either not very bright or has an incredibly high opinion of himself.

    At a guess I think Anderson is comparing the way he and Jackie produce. Either way, I wouldn't know why he would take offense at JD calling him "jackie," if that's what he calls himself. JD is an instigator and loudmouth, Anderson is a thin skinned *****.

    I honestly don’t remember anything about the whole Jackie Robinson stuff. But if Anderson said anything remotely comparing himself to that, he deserves whatever ball-breaking he gets lol

    Either as a person, or as a player

    For certain! As the old cliche' goes, " he couldn't carry Jackie's jock!"
