Kent no fan of gay marriage

Free agent Jeff Kent has a thing against gay marriage.  So much so, he’s willing to put his money where his mouth his.  

He’s putting up 15 grand of his own money towards the cause of stopping Proposition 8 in California.  Prop 8 would ban same-sex marriages in the state.  Kent, by the way, isn’t a resident of the state (his official residence is in Austin, TX) but did play the bulk of his career with the Giants and the Dodgers.

A hotly contested battle, around $30 million has been spent from both sides.  The latest poll shows Californians oppose the ban 49% to 45%. 

Frank Schubert, who manages the Yes-on-8 campaign, did his best to butter up Kent.

He has had a stellar career and will no doubt one day be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.  I wish the Giants had kept Kent and traded Barry Bonds.

Come on Frank, don’t alienate your base.
