"You know what? If I have to go somewhere else, that's the business. I might have more opportunity in another organization, but you do want to get it done with the team that drafted you. I don't know what plans they have for me. I'm kind of tired of thinking about that. I'm to the point where I don't care about what they want to do -- keep me, trade me, send me down. Pretty much everyone on this roster is from a different team, so it wouldn't be the first time it happened."
"I've seen so many guys come into this level, struggle, have to take a step back to take two steps forward. If you give up on every one of your young players because they haven't had success right off the bat, I don't know if you'll have much of a team left.

And, Kenny on Ozzie's "handling" of Brian and young players in general:
"When you don't have a player-development background, or any background with developing young players, that's something you have to acquire on the way. You don't step into this job and have a full grasp of it. I have no complaints on how Ozzie handles the young players, but it will get better as time goes on."
