Slippery Slope for Arizona

Arizona is trying to take the high, righteous road in making very public their decision to withhold Jason Grimsley's remaining pay, while calling Grimsley every name in the book. (Mostly, because he has been ineffective this year.)

Grimsley intends to file a grievance with the union, which in its turn will mow down the Dbacks on this one. Grimsley has been released, but isn't charged with any crime.

The DBack ownership probably expects to lose, but they chose this moment for some Holier-Than-Thou posturing.

"In my mind, he (Grimsley) probably owes us as opposed to us owing him," AZ Managing General Partner Ken Kendrick said.

"What he is really asking us to do, if he files a grievance, he's asking us to pay him for not performing, when the reason that he isn't performing is because he was a cheater ..."

(Uh...Kenny...You don't want to see Grimsley's stuff without the juice.)

Moreover, Ken, My Man, many steroid users perform just fine, as you will probably find out when other members of your team are exposed.

What will you do then, Kenny? Ask the crummy-result cheaters to give their salaries back, while the good-for-you cheaters get a pat on the butt?

Here's a For-Instance: What if LuGo ends up on Grimsley's rat-out list?
