I think the "I’m really not gay" line is absolutely priceless.

Baseball fans will NOT overlook this "youthful indiscretion" because it makes him in fact what he says he isn’t. Can you imagine what non-genteel spectators will say at ballparks where this young man is playing? He is finished before he starts.
