I think the most interesting part about the story was kendrick didn't seem too upset about it. If a coach told me I was traded to a different country i would probably freak out. Kyle seemed pretty cool about it, but I guess thats his nature on the mound as well :-D

I think they told him he would be making a couple million in Japan. I would be packing my bags fairly quickly if I was offered a 500% raise.

I love the fact it was for Japan's "hot dog eater."

Saw it on ESPN, it was done so well.
The assistant GM was in on it, everyone, I wonder if t he media was?

But makes him look really kinda stupid, players cannot get traded to or from Japan, and Kobiyashi is a hotdog man.

haha, yeah I just thought about this. I'd probably be pretty happy too. It was funny when Kendrick was smiling when they introduced him to the press. :-D

That was priceless. Poor kid, you could tell he was just trying to act professionally, even though his whole world had been turned upside down.

Boy that was funny, the 3 things that stood out to me.. His initial expression in front of Manuel.. His expression, he was so shocked, I thought he was going to break down, second, when he was told he got punked, the laughs by the cameramen were like bad nightmare in your face laughs, look at that again and third and the most funny to me is when Myers told him Kobayashi was the world champ hot dog eater.. This is a all time classic.. It's so funny when he was told he got punked and the reactions and laughs from the camera men, it's like a hollywood slapstick movie laughing nightmare..

They were. Kendrick and Leslie Gudel (a host of Comcast SportsNet in Philly) were on 610 WIP (local radio sports talk station) this morning and he said that he learned that the whole media gathering was all ad-libbed. Funnies part is Pat Burrell "I asked him to sign a jersey he said he was going to Japan." Victorino, Werth, and a few others said they felt so bad for him that they offered him to help get Myers back so stay tuned! :-D

Brett Myers just looks like complete scum. The kind of scum that might hit a woman :-?
