Chone Figgins is a lazy bum
Here's another player underachieving his worth than the money he's being paid for: Chone Figgins. In the offseason he signed four-year, $36 million contract. So far he's hitting a lousy .229 with 22 RBIs. Not worth the money paid for and has ripped off the Mariners with his laziness. He took laziness to the extreme when he let a throw go when it was within reach allowing Mike Cameron running with a sports hernia to stretch a double to a triple. Manager Don Wakamatsu had enough and benched him. It resulted in a dugout fight between the two. The player that replaced him, Josh Wilson, proceed to hit a double. Wilson making the minimum and proceeds to get the job done. How about taking money from Figgins from that game check and give it to Wilson for doing his job? Mariners should not only bench him but trade his lazy ass to any team that will use him as a salary dump.
