And I have zero problem with him saying that.


Yes, you want team players...but guys are also going to do what is best for them. You might play your way onto next year's team, or you might play your way to being a more valuable trade commodity. The one thing you don't want to do is play your way back to Milwaukee.

While you want to play to win, I'd rather have a team with a healthy level head, that knows the situation, than one that is getting frustrated with the (predictable) results of playing so many prospects.
