Quote of the Day: Buster Olney joins the Manny Ramirez hit parade


“He apparently lacks a basic level of professional integrity that hundreds of millions of people have in their jobs.”

Buster Olney’s view of Manny Ramirez, voiced in the course of making the case for Ramirez’s 2011 employer to give him a really, really low base salary with heavy incentives.

I think this is a massive, massive overstatement. Have you seen the unemployment numbers? There is no way “hundreds of millions of people” have jobs anymore.
