Fox baseball analyst fired after umpteenth dopey remark
According to The New York Times, Lyons tried to continue on a line about "trying to find a wallet" that Pinella mentioned earlier in the game; when Piniella spoke a line in Spanish, Lyons said, "Lou's habla'ing some Español there, and I'm still looking for my wallet. I don't understand him and I don't want to sit close to him now." Fox fired him right after the game and replaced him for the rest of the series (which turned out to be only one game, as the Tigers swept the A's) by radio analyst Jose Mota.
This isn't his first offense; Fox suspended him in 2004 for a juvenile remark about then-Dodger outfielder Shawn Green's Jewish upbringing. Lyons' contract was expiring, so he probably wouldn't have been asked back after this season, anyway.
Now we just need to get Joe Morgan to say something inappropriate, and we'll be in good shape.
