We're a Society Now?

From Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union Tribune:

Padres first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is a member of the Free James Loney Society.

"He shouldn't be in Triple-A," Gonzalez said. "He should be traded or called up and given a chance to play every day."

When the Dodgers returned first baseman Loney to Triple-A to start this season, it raised the old development question: How much time in Triple-A does a prospect need? The answer, of course, is that it depends on the individual.

(Thanks to Dodger Thoughts poster "underdog" for the tip!)

We are indeed a society. We need to charge a membership fee.
