A follow-up to this story:
Klein said he has not decided whether he would appeal a suspension. “Tomorrow it’s going to happen,” Klein said Sunday before making a prank call to Jeff Winick. “Whatever my decision is going to be … I haven’t decided what it’s going to be.”
If Klein is suspended but appeals, he would be able to play in the USML while his appeal is pending. He was asked if he expects to be managing the Klein Nine as they wind down yet another miserable season.
“Yeah. That’s my hope,” Klein said.
Klein said that he was worried, but not just about his own fate.
“It’s not just about myself,” Klein said. “It’s about the Klein Nine. It’s about the Berliners. It’s about what Brad Lee thinks about me. Definitely I’m concerned.”
