Buck Showalter is an incredibly knowledgable dude — I often refer to him as the smartest manager in baseball. Folks love pointing at the Orioles record in one-run games last season and saying they were lucky. I credit the Orioles’ bullpen magician/skipper.
But when it comes to rap music, Buck Showalter doesn’t know a whole lot.
Rap song playing on PA. Buck asked whether it was “half dollar.” Well, that’s sorta like 50 Cent.

Buck Showalter just referred to rapper 50 Cent as “half dollar.” Last year, he called LL Cool J as “LJ knocking out his momma.” #Orioles
