    Personal problems or not, he did skip out of work, 37. All I'm saying is that he should have notified his team that he was leaving, not just walk out with absolutely no communication with ANYONE!

    Baseball is his job. Would you just leave your place of work for several days with no communication to them, even if you had personal issues to deal with? That what I thought.

    He might have been having communication with his family.... He might have been having emotional problems or serious depression. Obviously you haven't experienced that type of situation or you would opt to give him a little room. When someone is having certain intense problems the job is the least of their worries, minimum wage to millions of dollars there are somtimes things that are more important. I don't know if he was thinking he'd rather deliver newspapers as opposed to working in professional baseball, I'm sure someone will tell me when they learn the answer to that. If he was just feeling that he would rather go fishing than show up for work then of course he should have given them notice, and get a bad reference. If it turns out to be more than that it's completely understandable, some would never understand that, but it's true.

    When my father died, I was devastated. But I called my work.

    Not only that, but after the contract expired, he'd have 10 years of service time and be eligible for the major league pension. Now, not so much.
    Makes all the routine posts.
