Nick Hundley is not impressed with Yasmani Grandal... at ALL

There aren't a whole lot of ways to spin this other than Nick Hundley doesn't care much for Yasmani Grandal.

2013 being an odd numbered year, Nick Hundley is feeling a bit saucy:

"You want to talk about a guy who is unproven and had a good couple months on steroids, go ahead," Hundley said on Wednesday.

But it’s what Hundley said next that makes this more about him than Grandal.

"I’ve got a job to do," Hundley continued.

Nice try, Kevin Acee, but unless we have a couple different definitions of "more" that we're working with, this isn't about Hundley or Grandal, but rather... This is all about Hundley and Grandal.

I'm so curious as to what the question was that prompted that response. What do you think about Yasmani Grandal coming back from his suspension? That seems like the most obvious one to elicit the reaction.

Personally, as saucy a response as it is, I don't like it for the clubhouse. Grandal would've been even less of an issue if Nick Hundley had done his job and not sh_t the bed in 2012. That's what I want to talk about. A guy who was "proven" and proceeded to have the worst career of his year as a followup. Actually, I don't really want to talk about that, but it's kinda out there.

This leads to the question of what kind of clubhouse is Grandal going to return to? Obviously, at least from the standpoint of the guy Grandal will be sharing time with, it's a hostile one.

Hundley also says that he hasn't given it any thought when it comes to the question of how he'll feel potentially sharing time with Grandal. Kevin Acee believes him when Hundley claims this weird bit of ignorance, but I got a biting quote that says unless the man is like Eminem with spitting angry stream of consciousness, then Hundley probably has given it some thought. And they're snippy thoughts at that.
