Felipe Alou 1, Larry Krueger 0

I'm actually surprised it took as long as it did, but Larry Krueger is gone from KNBR, after his comments about the Giants lineup being filled with "brain-dead Caribbean hitters hacking at slop nightly."

Krueger was suspended at first, for a week without pay, but Alou didn't back down and quit his pre-game show on KNBR over the comments, and good on him for doing it.

I listened to Krueger rarely when I lived in the City, preferring the play by play of Jon Miller to the Jim Rome-esque rantings that Krueger put on the air. He seemed to thrive on trying to piss off various sections of the public and pitting them against each other, the way Michael Savage does in politics. (On a side note, it's amazing to me that San Francisco, one of the most liberal, multi-cultural cities in the nation, is the home to a racist, anti-semitic, misogynist moron like Savage.) Alou refused Krueger's apology, seeing it for what it was, an insincere attempt to save his job, and KNBR did what they needed to do from the beginning--fire Larry Krueger.
