Rays’ owner Stuart Sternberg will not stand for anyone accusing his team of dumping salary. His comments yesterday when asked if the Scott Kazmir trade was just that:
“I think any real fan who looked at it could clearly see that it’s not
a salary dump . . . We live within our
means. It’s a reallocation of resources.”
The Rays had some good baseball reasons to trade Kazmir, and
actually got a nice return for a guy who has not lived up to his
billing for a couple of years now. Why Sternberg couldn’t say that, albeit in more polite terms, rather than trot out defensive and contradictory euphemisms is beyond me.
