BROADCASTER BEATS OFF BREAKDOWN? Mark Madden of Pittsburgh’s WEAE-AM claims on the station’s website that longtime Pirates radio announcer Lanny Frattare recently suffered an "emotional breakdown."

Madden’s assertion was spurred by Frattare recently taking a 10-game broadcast break because of an "undisclosed medical reason."

Madden: "Frattare actually went through an emotional breakdown related to a continuing estrangement from Pirates management and from his broadcast partners."

But despite Frattare’s fragile psyche, Madden writes, "I assume Frattare will retain his job despite his tribulations. Even the Pirates executive who masturbated in the office window got a second chance. Then, of course, he did it again."

I’m sure Lanny appreciates the comparison.
