Then and Now

Danny Graves on D'Angelo then:

"When you don't want to try and you don't want to try to get better, there are guys in the minors who do," he said. "That attitude can become a cancer. D'Angelo didn't have the attitude that I'm going to help the team. If a guy isn't going to try to contribute, why keep him around?"

And now:

"I think they're really big on making examples of people, and it shouldn't be that way," Graves said. "I was an example, D'Angeleo (Jimenez) was an example, sending Austin (Kearns) down was an example. We're not going to help you, we're going to get rid of you. It's unfortunate."

It's crazy, I used to be a big fan of Graves.
