Mass Production

At the end of this clip, Bugs tells us the Gas-House Gorillas are "a bunch of dirty players." Not sure I agree, as the Gorilla batters are only doing their job: stepping up to the plate and hitting what is thrown at them. The word "dirty" might better apply to the Fordist re-imagination of the game -- less a conga line than a production line, one that rewards brawn over temperance.
