This is a case of a story becoming a bigger story then it actually is, simply because it's so absurd.

One guy on a roster of 24+ guys gives a throwaway comment, and it's front page National news. It's also the perfect type of story to automatically get Millions of clicks and thousands of "outraged" fans "sick of these pampered athletes" to post on various message boards.

Silly comment by Dozier, but that's all this really is, a silly story.

Back in the day both Dozier (if the other team caught wind he complained) AND Sisco would have gotten plunked the next time they played, and the only thing that would have been in the paper would be "Orioles Win 4-3" followed by a box score and a simple writeup of the game.

Front page on ESPN right now is "Kenley Jansen says 'who cares'". I say, exactly!

I agree, don't put a shift on then with 1 out in the ninth. I wish more people would bunt against that shift its the smart play
