Ian Kinsler confuses me

In a rather strange analogy, Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler dissed Eagles WR DeSean Jackson and QB Michael Vick and, in a roundabout way, called Philadelphia’s biggest stars unprofessional.

When ESPN Dallas asked Kinsler about teammate Michael Young, who requested a trade a few weeks ago, Kinsler responded by saying, “"This isn't DeSean Jackson or Michael Vick or Manny Ramirez. Michael Young is a professional. It would be completely out of his personality not to be here."

So, I’m a little confused. If he’s talking about Jackson’s desire for a new contract before the 2010 season began, it’s not correct to call him unprofessional. Jackson said he wasn’t going to be a distraction, and, in fact, he wasn’t, leadingt he league in yards per catch with 22.5.

And the Vick comparison is flummoxing as well, because Vick hasn’t demanded anything contract-related since he returned to the NFL following his prison sentence. Now, if Kinsler had substituted Albert Haynesworth and Darrelle Revis for Jackson and Vick, he’d be right on.
Instead, Kinsler whiffed completely, and now, he looks a little silly.

Young was spot on.   Vick is a convicted felon, Jackson is very immature and ran his mouth in the middle of the season about a new contract when he had a year and a half left, and Manny..well Manny is Manny..and that is not a compliment.  Manny is one of the biggest tools in MLB.
