LARRRY KRUEGER: MESSENGER OF SATAN?

Sirius/XM satellite radio has hired former San Francisco sports talk show host Larry Krueger. Krueger was fired by KNBR in 2005 after referring to “brain-dead Caribbean hitters” on his radio show.

Krueger’s radio station originally suspended him for a week after the comment. Then San Francisco Giants manager Felipe Alou (who is from the Dominican Republic) refused to accept Krueger’s apology, instead calling him “a messenger of Satan.” Alou then cancelled his pre-game radio appearances with KNBR and personally called the president of the Dominican Republic to complain about Krueger. Giants shortstop Omar Vizquel compared Krueger to controversial former pitcher John Rocker.
