Payton: The problem child

When Bradley and Thomas are back in a week, he is going to be on the bench everyday. If he keeps barking, they should ship him out. Nice game today Jay, but for real, your OB% is about .300. You are not an everyday player, get over it.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Before Sunday's game, Jay Payton opted not to talk with the media.
There was speculation that he wasn't pleased about being replaced by Bobby Kielty in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Giants. Payton had a key double in Friday's win and looked frustrated in his one at-bat on Saturday -- when he flied out to left field.
"I have nothing to say to anybody about anything," Payton said before Sunday's game.
