I really like the sounds of that. Especially if he's got the want and enthusiasm to get better and sees it as an opportunity to work on his game and play some bigger minutes.
Players already handcuff teams with their demands for a no-trade contract, but I agree with you. When players start dictating terms it can create problems.
