Ozzie on Boone Logan's assumption that players acquired via trade carried extra weight when deciding who'll make the team:
"We go by what we need this moment, and we explained that well to Boone. It doesn't mean someone pitched better than you. It's the need here, and I think we need a guy to throw more strikes and get more innings. When [Logan] sits for two or three days without pitching, it's hard for him to throw strikes."And Kenny:
"I don't care about that. I care about winning and winning now. This isn't about Kenny Williams and having to have someone on the team that makes me or some trade look better."
