Brian Dozier calls Padres dishonest after ‘debacle’ of not making team

It seems he won’t soon forget his short stint with the Padres, because he feels the organization tricked him.

“I’m a big transparency guy,” Dozier said (per Fox Sports and the San Diego Union-Tribune). “I like people to be honest with me. That wasn’t the case over there. I had to get out of there. I’ll leave it at that.”

Padres manager Jayce Tingler told reporters he doesn’t know why Dozier feels the way he does.

“We pride ourselves (on) being transparent, (on) being honest. We wish him nothing the but best of luck over there. . . . I can’t speak for the way he feels,” Tingler said, per the Union-Tribune.

Mets took a "free to good home" shot with a 2B who has averaged 29 HR per season in 2015-19.

what could go wrong?

You should know better than to say something like that during a pandemic.

Dozier was my favourite player for a while there. In 2016-2017 he was one of the best 2B around.

I'd say it's amazing how quickly guys fall off the cliff...if it didn't happen so often.

Regardless of how he played he was a hell of a lot of fun on the Nats last year and I wish him well
