I invite you to read the entire article, but I’ll show some of the “highlights”…
It proved to be one of the most difficult seasons of a 12-year big league career.
“I went through it because they put me through it. It wasn’t like I did it to myself,” Womack said. “I still like to play. It’s no fun knowing that you can still play and contribute to somebody when this team is holding you back. The Yankees held me back.”
For the record…Womack hit .249 with 15 RBIs in 108 games and had an OBP of .276. Yep, the Yankees did that to him.
“The only thing that makes me mad is it messes up my baseball card,” said Womack, who reported to Reds camp Tuesday and completed his first workout. “I was consistent for a long time and then that comes up. It was a learning experience for me. I’m a stronger person. I had to be. I had to bite my tongue a lot. I had to keep myself going and make sure I got my work in.”
Yeah, Tony, don’t worry that you didn’t help your team or that you didn’t earn the $2M you were being paid. Be upset that it “messes up your baseball card.”
A plea to Reds management…cut this bum. I can’t spend the entire year listening to this type of drivel come out of someone’s mouth that should be thanking God every day that he’s fooled people enough to be collecting a baseball paycheck.
