New season, new ex-player drama

It seems like every spring training, we have some ex-player talking trash about the Rangers in the media.  This year, much to my dismay, it’s Ian Kinsler.  I was saddened the day he was traded as he has been my favorite player for the past few seasons.  After reading his comments to ESPN today, I’m even sadder … and a little angry.

Here’s what I posted on my facebook as a response:

Dear Ian Kinsler — I hate the business side of baseball as much as anyone, but it is still a business. I’m sorry you got your feelings hurt, but that’s no reason to act like a petulant child in an interview. You’ve gone full Hamilton, and I’m very disappointed. I thought you had a little more class than that. Honestly, I think your quotes today break my heart more than the day you were traded … and that’s saying something.

Someone pointed out to me that Hamilton trash-talked the fans and Ian didn’t.  Fair enough, but he sure didn’t show much more class than Josh.  I understand his feelings were hurt by the trade.  I understand he’s probably angry about it all.  Trust me. I get it.  As a girl who was recently laid off twice in a seven-month span and has changed jobs a handful of times in her career, I haven’t always been pleased with my former employers. But, in my opinion, you don’t burn bridges.  Sure, he was asked the questions, but he should have taken the high road and said something along the lines of, “I’m looking forward to my new season with the Tigers.”

Sigh.

You’ve lost a lot of my respect, Ian.

Moving on …

As I’ve noted on my Twitter account and a few other places, I don’t know how much time I’ll have for this blog during the upcoming season.  I have a newish job and am very involved with some local organizations.  Ultimately though, I think I would miss having this outlet if I gave it up.  So I will continue to update this blog though it may not be every game.  Thanks for hanging with me!

    Playing tennis puts an enormous strain on the shoe. With the running and short stops, the jumping and quick moves on the bottom soles, it’s no wonder that tennis players require a new pair every six months or so. When you look for a tennis shoe, you might be surprised at how much technology has changed even since the last time you bought a pair. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what you actually need. But chances are if new technology was invented for the tennis shoe, then it was probably invented for a reason and you probably need it.

    This is probably the reason why it is the chosen footwear of parents for their babies like Mason Kardashian. The supple and pelt moccasins for babies worn by the adorable baby boy was very conspicuous in the cover of a prestigious publication. The quality and elegance of the footwear can be seen clearly in the published photographs. These cute moccasins can also be wonderful presents this coming Christmas as well as special occasions like birthdays and graduation from school. Moccasins for babies are a perfect fit various apparel and can match casual getups, formal attire and sporty outfit. There will surely be no problems with shades as the brown and pink pairs can match almost any colors of slacks and polo shirts.
