A couple of other Oakland players got into the act by claiming they were misquoted i have offered to play bark the tape about Jackson a insecure. Very confused. Does some strange things for a Man of his intelligence Quot to outfielder Bill North with whom Jackson crawled this past season. Vida Blue was quoted As having once pointed to the Outfield and said. A there Are three cliques on this team and you can see then All out there there was no intimation in the Story that he said it to me. He said it to John Lindbloom of the san Jose news and he said it again to Hon Bergman of the Oakland Tribune Long time writers of Oakland baseball. The quote was also used in an Nea series last june pm the embattled a a. Blue also has a Short memory when he claims he did t talk to me. Vida was the Guy who led me like the proverbial Little Lamb to Slaughter by greeting me with a big smile in the runway to the Field literally taking me by the hand to the bathing Cage Tike it was a big gag. To he greeted by Jackson a explosion i was startled to put it mildly. So frankly was Charles 0 Finley who has been in some verbal Fra cases but you know what kind himself the owner of the of person Jackson is a said athletics said he was sorry Finley about Jackson s outburst and frankly at this stage i apologized to me for his out Don t and i done to think in a fielder s behaviour.
