Just read an article on another website (not sure if I can post the link-maybe someone can message me and tell me which are off-limits).
Very interesting that (if Oliver retires), we will have three departures of people under contract which are affiliated with the Blue Jays. Of the three, two are being vilified and one is not.
First Farrell, and his desire to go to his dream job in Boston. The way he handled it was atrocious.
Secondly Oliver, wants a raise but will play for the same amount if traded to Texas. This contradiction is making him look very bad to Jays fans.
Thirdly Ashby, broke his contract to move home. Somehow he has escaped critisism, and some people (myself included) are saying they will miss him.
My question/s; what makes breaking a contract acceptable for some and not for others? And what is the proper way to do it?
