Goold says no Russell.
Cardinals general manager Walt Jocketty had been handling the negotiations with Russell’s advisers — Alan Hendricks of the Hendricks’ brothers office — and said that while they spoke about general terms their view of those terms were different. Jocketty said they “talked in neighborhoods.”
I have all the apprecation and respect in the world for Mr. Jocketty, but right now…you suck Walt. I have to think right now Jeff Luhnow is stewing, wherever he is. I know I am. How the heck are you going to go cheap in the draft and in free agency and expect to keep winning? I don’t get it. I just don’t get it.
