As a professional, being paid like a professional, it's reasonable to assume said player will ACT like a professional....not like a spoiled five year old.
That's pretty much it Lip. He hit very poorly and was benched. You can't fault Ozzie for that, especially when we were in such a tight race for the division in '08. He didn't handle it like a professional.
