Tony: Kansas City’s Dumbest Move Of The Month, Quitter Gil Meche

Baseball in Kansas City is pretty much insignificant and mostly minor league, so I don’t feel like I have to be an expert in order to explain my complete and total disdain for the irresponsible actions of Gil Meche.

Let’s review.

in a resoundingly stupid decision this week the Royals pitcher decided to forgo a salary of $12 million for basically doing nothing and INSTEAD chosimng to retire.

Never before have I wished so hard for a line drive down the middle of the field.

For his fake version of selflessness Meche has been lauded by one person after the next.

Meche contended that "I wasn’t earning my money" and walked away from the game and into retirement. I humbly submit that this isn’t only the stupidest thing that’s ever done, it’s also just plain unAmerican.

Here’s why.

Praise of this dimwit decision always runs along the lines of how over-paid pro-athletes are and how other professions deserve more. The complaints are mostly focused on this nation, because I rarely notice anyone commending children in the 3rd world for all of their hard work sewing soccer balls.

At the heart of it, this praise of Meche’s move is nothing more than thinly disguised collectivism and a hope that people taking down ridiculous sums of money would think of the greater good without any incentive. While so many dimwit Tea Party supporters usually show their ignorance on all things local government . . . That previous line is pretty much part of the textbook definition of Communism.

Also, I’m surprised that nobody ever just thinks of playing for the Royals as a drag.

It must be disheartening to lose all of the time without any hope of accomplishing anything significant.

I’m not familiar with this feeling at all because I kick ass on a regular basis and I’m awesome but everyone knows the Royals are nothing more than a glorified minor league team. Therefore, Meche’s move may seem selfless because of so many grandiose excuses.

But in the end there’s a lot of evidence to suggest that he was just another quitter.

    Once again Tony . . .
    meth and journalism: a terrible combination.

    This is a firing offense
    Meche retired 12 days ago… not within the last “week.” This is late for print, Let alone electronic media. This is very lazy.

    This really dimishes the relevance of KC Confidential. I would remove it.

    This is possibly the most idiotic post I’ve ever read. It makes me wish Al Gore had never invented the Internet.

    Hmmm.
    To me, this article reads like a knee jerk reaction from a blogger after he apparently read an article in the KC Star. Instead of posting to the article’s comment section or posting it to his blog with a link to the article, he sent it to this website. This website posted it as an article.

    “For his fake version of selflessness Meche has been lauded by one person after the next.” Please provide an example! Who is lauding him. Can you please post a link to the article you are reading? Or post an example like how everywhere you go people are talking about was how great Gil Mech is?

    “Also, I’m surprised that nobody ever just thinks of playing for the Royals as a drag.” You are surprised that nobody else thinks of playing for the Royals as a drag? You heard no jokes about how he probably retired because the team loses so much? Can you post an article where it show everybody think playing for the Royals is great?

    “But in the end there’s a lot of evidence to suggest that he was just another quitter.” Great! I’m ready to read about some of your examples. But the article suddenly stops. And you provided no evidence.

    Hey Tony
    Yesterday’s news called – they want their story back.

    You should take a lesson from Meche
    Neither one of you are any good at what you do — he quit — we should all be so lucky if you followed suit.
