I cannot believe it!
This is horrible news.
How can this happen?
This is not what needed to happen.
I had it all figured out:
James Loney vs. Kim Ng
James’ Agent would say “Yes, he doesn’t hit a lot of HR, but he’s like Mark Grace.”
Kim Ng would say “Please, James Loney couldn’t carry Mark Grace’s jock and here’s why…”
James’ Agent would say that “he’s a clutch player who has a Gold Glove.”
Kim Ng would say that Loney was an “underperforming, overpaid loser.”
The arbitrator would rule against Loney and for Kim and LONEY WOULD BE REALLY PISSED!
He would show the Dodgers they were wrong.
He would play like a man possesssed and hit .320 with 30 HR and 120 RBI…
Except that the Dodgers and Loney settled and he signed.
Compliancy reigns and Loney will continue to underperform.
It really sucks.
Ned, you should haved trusted Kim to “rock his world.”
