No he just wanted to take a cheap shot at a guy. Thats all it was. He has no points, and even if he has one it all goes down hill when he points out that Bruce got pie faced, yet Bailey who everyone hated and ignored did also. Why point out Bruce got the pie and use that as a claim of how awesome and great a kid he is, then act as if Bailey didnt get the same treatment.
Hal was using his platform to show that he can trash a 22 year old kid that didnt give him a great interview. Thats exactly how I take it and I dont know how else you could, unless you really believe that Bailey wasnt in the majors because he was a bad guy, and the others were in the majors because they were great guys.
