Last night, The Common Man sat down with his co-blogger Bill, and our good friend Larry Granillo of to talk some baseball.  It was a terrific and far-ranging discussion that touched on a lot of issues that we've been thinking about for a while.  Specifically, we covered Milton Bradley and whether he still had any future in Major League Baseball.  Then we swapped stories of our "favorite" clubhouse cancers, Derek Bell, Albert Belle, Bobo Newsom, and Hal Chase.  Carl Pavano's new deal with the Minnesota Twins got our thumbs up, and Bill was highly amused at the outrage Yankee fans felt that Brian Cashman suggested the Mustache make a return to the Bronx.  Finally, we talked about the just past MLK Day, and baseball's largely undiscussed role in the fight for Civil Rights.  In particular, we highlighted the work done by players who are not often discussed in this context, Frank Robinson, Larry Doby, and Satchel Paige.  Give us a listen after the jump.
