Marty is a jerk. It's classless to slam Larkin after he left.
Marty is probably jealous over all the time that Larkin was a bigger name in the Reds organization than he is..
Yeah, Marty, real classless of Larkin to thank the fans after the team gave him the boot.
And who cares if Lark insisted on starting here (no proof) but now is willing to be a backup? Can't the man change his mind (if that is true).. Let's see, Larkin was benched the last 6 weeks, but still wanted to come back. Marty needs to give Lark some credit for having enough intelligence to realize that he wouldn't be the regular starter. Lark probably prefered to start, because he's a competitor, but surely he knew that he wouldn't start every game if he came back.
Marty is a pompous, classless jerk. I'll be glad when the old grouch leaves the booth. He obviously doesn't enjoy his job anymore, so why doesn't he just retire.
