America’s Newest Folk Hero : Scott Eyre

That’s right, Joe The Plumber is so two weeks ago (even if his recent appearance on The Best Show On WFMU was his most interesting moment in the public eye to date).  Both Deadspin and (ahem) Sons Of Bill Simmons are spreading word that Phillies P Scott Eyre (above) was the previously unidentified gent who said of MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, “I wouldn’t let him supervise one of my (bowel movements)” according to the Courier-Post’s Mike Radano.

While baseball fans across the land would surely concur with Eyre, the question remains, just who does the reliever consider competent enough to supervise his trips to the toilet? Peter Ueberroth and George W. Bush both come to mind, but surely Dallas Green would like to find some way to play a part in the contemporary Phillies’ success?
