This Ryan Theriot shit is making me hate him more than before. At this point there is almost nothing he can do on the baseball field that will make me stop wishing for him to fall into a pit of regurgitated corned beef hash. Am I missing something?
You hate him for going to arbitration? I don't like Theriot at all, but I think it's
pretty awesome he's willing to double down on $400,000 (assuming the Cubs offered him the midpoint).
And I think it's total bullshit that the Cubs are crying about a player going to arbitration. Given that the
owners have spent most of the last 100+ years colluding against the players, I'm happy to see a player
stick to his guns (likely literally plastic toys with red tips in this case) and take advantage of the collective
bargaining agreement that the owners signed on for.
If I could go to arbitration for my job, I sure as hell would.
You're missing the part where you don't overanalyze irrational hatred.
