Son, we play baseball on fields that have fences, and those fences have to be guarded by men with grit. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Scott McKinney? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Mitch Meyer, and you curse Jeff Francoeur. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not being near the dirt, and knowing that MITCH's lack of playing time, while tragic, probably saved runs. And my roster construction, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves money. You don't want a GM who values OBP, because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me in that office, you need me in that office. We use words like work ethic, plus hands, and plus hands. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent playing baseball. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who cheers for and blogs about very rosters that I construct, and then questions the manner in which I construct them. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you give Chris Getz 2 Polk Points for that sacrifice bunt. Either way, I don't give a damn what you write about.

Dayton Moore, to Freneau
