Re: The Next Generation
Young may have been venting... but you don't do it like that and gain any respect, nor do you vent like that to the press. In fact, in the minors you don't vent like that to anyone unless you're behind closed doors.
I wouldn't bring them up in September either. When you act like a child, you should be treated like a child... and not coming up in September I'd hope would be construed as punishment to these young men, rather than revenge.
If management thought they could do better than those on the big club, they'd probably be there by now. Just because the team isn't doing well in no way indicates its minor leaguers could do better at that level.
Sounds like they want a gift... unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. Promotion to the majors is earned (usually)... on AND off the field. Sounds like they have a long long way to go... and they'd better start picking up their uniforms along the way.
This article really made me angry. If I was the head honcho in TB, I'd cut 'em..... yesterday!!
