Ken Rosenthal gets told by Derrek Lee

9 Comments

This is fun.

Rosenthal and Morosi on Wednesday re: Derrek Lee’s no-trade clause:

” . . . some friends of the Cubs first baseman said this week that
they believe he would accept a deal to the right team.”

Derrek Lee about Rosenthal today:

“I would bet that
not one of my friends knows who Ken Rosenthal is

I dunno. Maybe Rosenthal is like Prince and he uses the word “friends” as a synonym for “fans” or something. Or maybe I’m just getting vocal tone wrong again and I was missing the hard inflection placed on the world “friends,” and Rosenthal really means “enemies.” Or maybe when he says “Cubs first baseman” he means Leon Durham.
