Quote of the Day II: Dioner Navarro

Feb 19, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

“I just want to do my job and get rich.”

Rays’ catcher Dioner Navarro, tellin’ Marc Tompkin of the St. Petersburg Times how it is.

But what about the women? There will be women too, right?

    Baseball been very, very good to me…

    First you get the money, then you get the power, THEN you get the women!

    Then you get caught and get knocked upside the face with a 9 iron.

    But then you apparently have to apologize to the rest of society for having all the women.

    Well, at least he’s honest. None of this “I just want to play for a winner” stuff, or “I love the Rays and want to stay forever.”

    I’m telling you, it’s jobs. We gotta get jobs. Then we get the khakis. Then we get the chicks.

  7. Dan W - Feb 19, 2010 at 3:18 PM

    I respect the honesty…

    So you must agree in the cynical words of Gordon Gekko, “Greed Is Good”!!!
    Not in my book.
    Just look at the mess we’re in because of that Wall Street, highfalutin banker mentality. Whatever happened to “We make money the old fashion way, WE EARN IT!” method. The big leagues need more incentive laden contracts, you hit well, you play well, you get paid well, then comes the women.
    Navarro better be watching over his shoulder this season [and I’m not refering to that fat umpires’s belly behind him], he’s got stiff, younger competition, looking for that starting catcher’s position.

    There is no woman left in the area for him , Tiger has the market cornered but he can get rich.

    Step 1: Get Job, Step 2: ???, Step 3: Profit.

  13. Kid Charlemagne - Feb 19, 2010 at 4:47 PM

    Step 3: Profit!

    MLB salaries pay players based on their past performance, generally assuming that it will continue through the duration of the contract. Players work for much less than market value through their controlled years, then they sign a contract, based on what two independant and rational (mostly) sides mutually agree upon. How is this not earning it?

    Thanks to guaranteed contracts, he doesn’t need to do his job to get rich.
