After serving as The Glue for the World Series champion Philadelphia Phillies, Geoff Jenkins was released today. His parting comments obviously did not disappoint:
"Anytime you get released it's obviously a surprise," he said. "I think it's just something that we talked about. I don't know if I foreshadowed this scenario happening, but I knew there were left-handed hitters. So it seemed like somebody would be the odd man out at some point. It's real tough. I care a lot about those guys in the clubhouse. You just deal with this like anything else and try to find a new spot. It's obviously something I've never had to deal with before, playing my whole career. I guess what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I don't regreat anything for one minute that I was here. I told Charlie that, and Ruben. They were great with me."
Be well, Geoff. Might The Glue be this year's Gabe Kapler for the Brewers? I say dump TG Jr. and go get him, Doug.
