"He's not a fourth outfielder. He's not," Colletti said.
However, the GM emphasized the importance of depth through injuries and slumps.
"We've also got 162 games, and we've got to get everybody healthy and ready to play," he said. "There may be one guy sitting here and there, if everybody's healthy. Did we have everybody healthy last year?"
"He's not a fourth outfielder. He's not," Colletti said. "But if he plays like he he did last year, his ass is sitting on the bench and we will be getting him a pink uniform."
I’m not a fourth outfielder. We can cut that off right there,” Kemp said. “I won’t accept that role. I can’t accept that role.”
In OotP, when players start ######## about playing time, I send them to rookie ball.

he's a good defensive catcher with excellent speed, stealing and baserunning ratings. He's a very useful guy to have around as a pinch-runner for my catcher or first baseman in the late innings.
Is there any player in real life that has ever answered to this description?
Stearns was a starter for nearly his entire career, Jose.
I assume he got hurt somehow.
For another, his step-brother murdered his mother in the streets of San Diego with an antique saber. That crime inspired Werner Herzog's movie My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done?, which has been on my list for a while.
As for why I would sign a backup to a five-year contract, he's a good defensive catcher with excellent speed, stealing and baserunning ratings. He's a very useful guy to have around as a pinch-runner for my catcher or first baseman in the late innings. I'm going to try keeping him around as long as I can, no matter how much he complains about his role.
In 2013 Andrew McCutchen and Buster Posey were both forced into retirement due to skull fractures.
While speaking of odd players, I once tried to figure out if there was a real player who was to the major leagues what I was to Little League. Which was "outfielder/second baseman who could walk but not hit, and was awkward but surprisingly fast".

Wait, players send you guys notes in OOTP? That never happens to me except as a reminder that a player's on his contract year.
I usually have several guys on the team who are marked as ANGRY about their Role On Team, but are overall happy anyway so long as the team keeps winning 100+ games a year. But those players don't spam me with emails ######## about riding the bench, and I've always wish they would, if they had a high Greed, low Desire to Win, low Loyalty type of personality at least. It would make me dislike them more and more inclined to trade them away.
