Ya know what?
Not even gonna talk about it. Sorry, no rants today. He got his money, and a chance to be in an 8-man rotation with a team with a decent chance to go to the postseason. Good for him. Hopefully he'll be able to pitch this year and doesn't have any Hampton-like setbacks. A chance at another title, a couple million more bucks and a career stat line with one extra team at the end is apparently worth more than the opportunity to finish your career playing for only one ballclub. Like Gehrig, Williams, Banks, Yount, Brett, Ripken and Gwynn. That's fine, he made his choice and it was probably a good one. Might as well get out now when the franchise is down. I'll just move on and root for my team. I have as much loyalty to him as he has for us.
