"The best reason for committing loathsome & detestable acts -and let's face it, I am considerably something of an expert in the field - is purely for their own sake. Monetary gain is all very well, but it dilutes the tastes of wickedness to a lower level that is obtainable by anyone will an overdeveloped sense of avarice. True and baseless evil is as rare as the purest good - and we all know how rare THAT is." - Acheron Hades, THE EYRE AFFAIR by Jaspar Fforde
I dunno. Henderson is Henderson. I mean the numbers he put up are fantastic. If I remember he was consistent last year. I think they will come up with an agreeable deal. If not they will have lost a possibly good leadoff player. I dunno. I think the team could definitely benefit from signing him.
That being said i dont know if i like the idea of Ricky being so vocal about his complaints for his contract status. Oh well. Part of business i guess.
I am the JOBBER TO THE STARS. You better remember that.
There's nothing here that says that this isn't just a short-term deal that buys out his remaining arbitration years. It could well be something that they agree to now while trying to lock him up for the real long haul.
