Dennis Thomas Released
Well, that was a quick answer to how serious this benching was going to be. Even Wilner thought it was going to take a couple of weeks, but TSN is reporting that Thomas has been released. I’m sure we’ll hear more from both sides very, very soon.
“They do that after 16 games, after 60 at-bats. That’s bulls—. We all know what’s behind this. What else could be behind this but the money?”
“What the f— is that, with my track record, they know what I can do,” Thomas said. “I tried to be the nice guy, the gentleman. I’ve kept my mouth shut.
“But I know I can hit. One good week and I’d be back on top. I know I haven’t hit the ball that well but I’m not the only f—ing player. Look at (Gary) Sheffield with Detroit, (David) Ortiz with Boston. I know I can hit, that I can get on fire.”
Whether you like this move or not, that pretty much sums it up. If you buy the ridiculous B.S. from J.P. that the only goal here is for more production out of the DH spot, turn back the calendar one year and then give yourself a slap.
