Pirates reliever Keone Kela told reporters this weekend that he won't be speaking to the media this year. Good for him.
If I've learned anything in the last few weeks, it is that the evil media will spin narratives out of control.
Good for Keone Kela to stay out of the #FakeNews crosshairs.
NAH. F-that. Kela is one of 25. He's making just north of three million dollars. He should be accountable just like everyone else on the roster. He will have a bad outing this year. Several, I bet. Who is going to speak for him then? The catcher? The manager?
Being an adult means having to take responsibility for your actions. Being a professional athlete means taking the good with the bad. The good is the fame and 3.17 million dollars. The bad is talking to John Perrotto and Rob Biertempfel. He should be able to manage.
