James Shields and Rays plotting a faith-based conspiracy?

This has to be, without a doubt, one of the most ridiculous call-ins to a radio show that I have ever heard.  The scary part is that Linda the Quaker is actually dead serious with her contention that James Shields is only pitching Game 2 of the ALDS because he is Jewish, and that the decision was made by the Rays’ brass…who is also Jewish?

No, seriously.

Her argument is that Shields is pitching in the playoffs for no other reason than the fact that he’s Jewish (information that cannot be verified, anywhere). Furthermore, since the Rays owners are Jewish and, “it’s their faith, they support each other.”

I really can’t do the clip justice with my description; it really is that preposterous. Kudos to Steve Duemig at WDAE in Tampa for having the patience to talk with Linda, and not cave in to her child-like, backwoods ignorance.
