i think that this will backfire on him, as he said in the article he is one of the last players from the 2001 team that won 116 games, wether it's a
language barrier, or just his personality a lot of people are gonna wonder why he is pointing fingers instead of stepping up himself,
he either has met or is going to meet with the owner of the M's, the guy who owns Nintendo in Japan, this is something that he does after every
season, it will be interesting to see what, if anything comes out of that meeting....btw, the owner has never seen the M's play, he was going to go to
a game when they were to visit Japan a few years ago but that trip was canceled due to 911 i believe
i thought that releiver Jeff Nelson's comments were a little strange
"Put it this way," Nelson said, "in a rough season, when you have so many young guys, they're just happy to be in the big leagues. They're out of the
minors. They're going to different cities. They're making big-league money. Who cares if they win or lose?
"With guys like (Yuniesky) Betancourt or (Jose) Lopez, it's hard to tell them, 'Hey, it's time to win.' It's overwhelming. Give them some time to
shine. Maybe next year you tell them that it's time to buckle down."
