- He loves SD too much to leave / His family does not want to leave
Honestly, I couldn’t agree with this idea more. Having family out in SD, I can completely and utterly understand a desire to stay out West. The climate is flat-out fantastic, unless you hate 73 degrees and sun every day. Spare me your “oh, I’ll miss the seasons” or “isn’t that boring?” crap. NO! Perfect weather is NOT boring. You know what sucks: Snow, cold rain in the Fall, sleet, black ice, days straight of rain. You know what doesn’t suck? San Diego weather. Because of the weather, kids are outside more and so are adults, biking, playing ball and simply enjoying life. Why? Because they are not shuttered in due to the */+$%$^&* weather!!! Is this clear?
He really likes to bat 3-6 times a week
I call BS. It’s a convenient excuse. You know who else likes to bat? Sabathia and he let it go because the price was right.
