Default Harris wants out?

Article in the Southtown today.

Seems to say he wants out, then backs off the statement, then says it again...bottom line is it seems he's upset that management told him the "had plans" for him and then went and signed Iguchi.

Default We don't believe in you Willie.

The biggest hit you had last year was on Magglio's knee. Singles hitter who bat .262 and fast guys who don't steal bases don't start in the majors.

The Soc DO have a role for you. It's called the backup 2nd baseman/CF/pinch runner. Don't look at it as losing a position, look at it as gaining 3!

Oh, and if you don't like it, strap a set on and do something in spring training to MAKE Guillen put you in the starting lineup!

If we could get something good enough for him, I am sure KW is trying to accomodate that request.

Cry me a river.

I sure hope some other club will send us a utility infielder for Harris. His attitude sucks.

Later Willie... You won't be needed or missed at this rate.

I agree about the utility IF trade, but with Willie's "potential" the Sox might be able to get more for him. Work a package deal and get some prospects...

Works for me. I just hope KW doesn't hang on to him too long (like Borchard) where they can't even get a bag of BP balls for him.

Wow, Willie sure talks tough for someone who doesn't deserve a starting spot on any team in the league. We don't need you Willie, you can't run the bases for someone that fast. If you are gonna have this bad of an attitude than sayonara. I can name a hundred infielders that I would rather have than you.

Looks like Willie has completed his mail-order "Rick White and Scott Schoeneweis's How to Win Friends and Influence People" course.

I imagine that Ozzie and Kenny are about as impressed with Willie's attitude as I am. Read between the lines of what Ozzie and Kenny have been saying about Harris. I'm getting that they believe that Harris has a bunch of talent and a poor attitude. Unless Willie is being taken way out of context in this article, he's full of crap. He may have the potential to be a very good player, but he ain't earned nothin' yet.

Maybe Dale Tallon will take him off the Sox's hands for a couple of broken sticks and a used puck bag.

It's a known fact that Ozzie doesn't like Willie at all anyways. I think KW will be glad to ship him out. Let's go out and get a back-up who won't bitch and moan about a starting job that they don't deserve.

Willie no matter what the Sox told you, their actions over the last two years should have told you everything you needed to know. They've brought in Robbie Alomar twice as a replacement for you. The Sox have zero confidence in you.

Are there any teams out there that absolutely need a second baseman?

When we traded for him the word was that he had great speed but average talent that he made up for with an incredible work ethic. That sounds like a manger's dream. I wonder if the work ethic has changed. Having a little bit of a flashy attitude should not be a problem for Ozzie as that was exactly the type of player that he was.

Ozzie wasn't an *******.

Didn't we just have a discussion a few days ago about Willie's attitude?

And that was just from seeing him at Soxfest...
