From ESPN'S Sox Page:
"I might not have told them the extent of my injury because I wanted to keep my spot on the starting staff. It was a matter of pride on my part."
RHP Rocky Biddle, admitting to the Chicago Sun-Times that wasn't completely honest with the team about his shoulder pain

Is it just me or does this sound like Harold Baines comment about how he would retire if he wasn't helping the team.

I can understand young guys not too long out of the minors doing anything possible to stay in the show. I'm not saying it's a smart thing to do. I can just see where they are coming from.
