There isn't a baseball fan in the country who isn't steamed about Detroit's Armando Galarraga getting screwed last night of a rightfully deserved perfect game. The Iron Sheik's pissed, the Governor of Michigan is pissed, and CNBC's Mark Haines is pissed. We've had a night to sleep on it and we're still fuming. It's the worst we've felt for the derelict urban wasteland of Detroit since the Lions went 0-16 in 2008.
Erin Burnett, however, was pretty cheery about the baseball quagmire, saying, "I thought it was handled so beautifully. It was a more memorable moment for it's failure, perhaps," on this morning's broadcast of CNBC's Squawk on the Street. A visually agitated Mark Haines didn't take too kindly to Burnett's mushy, Little League-ish "everyone's a winner in sports" attitude. We're surprised she didn't wiggle in a suggestion that they all go out for soft serve at Dairy Queen. Frankly, we're a little shocked by Burnett's sentimental, JV point of view, especially considering that she's a former women's laxer/field hockey player at Williams College and covers a cutthroat industry that thrives on competition. And then Haines dropped the bomb, telling Burnett, "This is why women aren't in charge of sports." Video after the jump.
