Again, deeray fan, you're so quick to defend management that you can't see the forest from the trees.
Of course, Crawford would say he's "had it" with these guys. If you were told this guy said this, and that guy said that, without knowing it was a fiction, you would have "had it" with these guys as well.
Now, suddenly, BJ is good, and the other two are bad seeds? it would not have anything to do with the fact that BJ is up, finally, and the other two have been banished????? Geez, it was just last week that BJ was just as bad as the other two. My how convenient this all sounds.
Really. What did Young say that was so terrible? Please-TELL ME!!!!!
Besides being misquoted and taken out of context, the jist of what he said was that Upton should be in the majors by now. Well, apparently, management must have agreed with him, because BJ is up right now.
And who ever said anything about entitlement? The media and management. Young did not say anything about himself being down in Durham, anywhere, in the USA today article.
You are basing your opinion on a pre-conceived notion of entitlement, when in this specific instance, you are wholeheartedly wrong.
I firmly believe what they are doing to this kid, and what the media has done to Dukes, is designed to sour the fan base and to deflect attention to where it belongs-squarely on the shoulders of management.
Again, I ask you-if management understood that the story in USA was wrong-as you stated they understood it was wrong with respect to BJ, where is the outrage??????? Where is the disciplany action against the reporter??????Where?
Management's silence to this is more of a reason to believe they are complicit.
And why would management parce out the article to conveniently believe the player they just called up, and to disbelieve the player in AAA purgatory and to disbelieve the player they just handed an indefinate suspenstion to? Sounds mighty convenient.
After Madden's little tirade himself last week, he sounded pretty damn consoling to BJ yesterday. "There is no hidden agenda here" is the quote this morning form Madden. Why do you think he would say such a thing, unless BJ had a pretty good argument as to the conduct of management in this whole mess.
All these things are just coincidence? I don't think so.
