Rewind Yourself

Jason Kendall of the Royals may be wound a bit too tight.

Nick Wright (610 AM), interviewing Kansas City pitcher third baseman Mike Moustakas on Monday: There's a decent chance that no matter how well you do this Spring Training, you might still start the year off in the minors just because of baseball's rules and wanting to hold on to eligibility, all that stuff. Do you think about that?

Kendall (sitting nearby but not part of the interview): No, he wants to stay in the minor leagues all fucking year. Are you shitting me right now?

Wright: Well ... you heard the question, Jason?

Kendall: Yes.

Wright: The question wasn't--

Kendall: Do you wanna start in the big leagues this year? ...

Wright: That wasn't the question, Jason.

Kendall: Rewind yourself.
Will McDonald, at Royals Review, is amazed that Wright, despite knowing exactly what he said, still offers an apology to Moustakas. It's the mature thing to do (although I would have rather heard Wright rewind himself and make Kendall look like more of an ass*).

* But then who would have recorded it?

"We aren't charging up San Juan Hill, Jason."

No, these days we just stand on this side of the Florida Straits and wait for the Cubans to defect.

Moustakas is a third basemen.

Apparently, someone needs to go back to media relations 101. Good grief.
