"The problem PK is that neither Moses nor Norman performed consistently in 2018. Unfortunately the reality is that we have far too many players that did not earn their pay including MJ who is also on big money. "

michael picklum replied to The True Parra fan's discussion 'Why did 2018 end up so bad'
