His six team NTC: Yankees, Diamondbacks, Rockies, Astros, Royals, and Athletics. You should have known it was bull**** right away.

It's interesting that he would put the Yankees on there and not the Mets. I wonder what it is about the Yankees franchise that he wouldn't want to go there. Even with $70 mil on the disabled list (A-Rod, Jeter, Tex), they're still competitive and will be this year and next.

Hopefully I get a text or catch a tweet here soon that he's on his way out and we're getting some good prospects for the future.

He couldn't get along with Toronto fans. I bet he thought he'd get eaten alive in the Bronx.

I just don't understand guys like Rios, all the talent in the world but I guess if he thinks the team stinks it's OK to dog it. He's right on one thing, the team stinks but when you make millions and millions a year you owe it to your team, your fans and MLB to hustle all the time.
Bottom line is wherever he winds up, I won't miss him.

Every player will dog it at some point in their career. More than likely multiple times.

This whole "players should go 100 percent all of the time, at all times" is just baffling to me. They probably don't want to be playing baseball some days just as much I wouldn't want to be at work.

There are many, many players who never dogged it with my all time favorite for one. Remember Charlie Hustle? When people are paying big bucks to see games these days and the money the players are making no one should dog it. Remember Fisk getting on Deion Sanders for dogging it and they were on opposing teams.
The really great players like Clemente, Mays, Mantle, Kaline, Musial and others just had too much pride to dog it.

If I was making 14,000,000 a year I would and I do in my over 200 rounds of golf a year. We play a team game and I'm usually the A player and I would feel horrible if I let my team down and we are playing for 10 bucks a man.
Baseball is not a demanding sport, you come up to bat 4 times a game and make a few plays in the field, infielders probably more. It's not asking a lot to give 100%, if you're tired ask the manager for a day off.

I don't like when any player doesn't run out ground balls, but the hypocrisy of fans gets on my nerves. PK and AJ led the team in dogging it for years and few ever complained. Rios hits into a DP, throws a mini temper tantrum and is a pariah.

Not as demanding as the other major sports, pitchers and catchers have it tougher. I think we have all seen some ballplayers that were not in the best of shape, a lot of people here at WSI think Dunn is lazy and out of shape, could you see Smokey Burgess playing soccer? Probably more of a grind and more mental than the other major sports.

Yep, John Kruk's statement, " I ain't an athlete, lady. I'm a ballplayer."

At the time Kruk only hit and played a very lazy first base. You have to be an athlete to be a good outfielder or middle infielder, and you have to be an athlete to play defense well even at the corners, although you can be a very good athlete and not be any good at baseball.

In baseball, you use muscles that you don't use in any other sport. It isn't just the grind going most days for six months with heavy travel. Watch what good outfielders are doing to put themselves in position to back up plays on the infield. Even the catcher jogs down toward first on a ground ball to shortstop when no one is on base. At least the good ones do.

I watched John Kruk in his first spring training with the Padres. He wouldn't have made it to the majors if he had not been an athlete.

There's a difference between not giving 100% everyday and dogging it. Failing to run out a double play ball with a runner on third in a major league ballgame is inexcusable.

Maggs didn't run for years before the knee went, was called on it by Rooney and I'm apparently the only one who noticed.

I think you need very good reflexes to play defense.
I don't see where you need to be an athlete to learn to back up plays, little leaguers know to back up plays, its just running to a position.
So a catcher is an athlete because he jogs to 1st base on a ball hit to ss?
I guess sales people would be athletic when they travel across the country promoting their company's products. Their travel is much more difficult , they don't have a chartered plane waiting for them at the air port.

If all you do is swing a bat, you don't need to be an athlete. Some people are offended when you say the people who participate in their favorite sports aren't athletes. But if hitting a moving ball with a round bat and running out your result doesn't make you an athlete, hitting a golf ball and walking after it doesn't make you an athlete. And if catching a baseball game in a squat, periodically getting up to field your position doesn't make you an athlete, sitting in a car and driving doesn't make you an athlete. It's a meaningless argument because all it's going to do is offend golf and NASCAR fans.

When I was teaching and coaching scholastic baseball, I had pitchers who weren't athletic, but could throw with movement or velocity to get hitters out. A few such pitchers make it to the majors, but not many. American baseball players don't have the same athletic regimen as Japanese baseball players (the Ray Kroc Baseball Complex in Yuma, Arizona, used to host a Japanese team who left about the time the Padres came in and watching the contrasts was interesting), but there is more athletic training in baseball than people realize and more athleticism in the game than most notice. Running. throwing and fielding go to the heart of what most people consider athletics (although there is no javelin or discus catch in track and field), even if hitting does not.

The season would be draining even without the travel.
