Similarly, there are expectations for the organization to live up to that go beyond the money owed to the player, also. Maybe they just aren't happy with the show Lou is running.

Again, I'm just speculating. I'm not even saying I believe it. It's just odd that two of the premier talents in the league chose to leave.
What Kovy did was wrong but it doesn't fall under that. A player can retire whenever he wants, even if he has 12 years left on his contract.
