Juan responds to Ozzie:
"It really doesn't matter if I play to my potential, because they might not want me next year. I could hit 30 home runs and that might not be what they are looking for. All I can do is go out and play hard and try my best. I really like it here. I really like the city and I like the way they treat me. I like the fans. I have nothing to complain about. But if that's not what they want, I have nothing else to do. ... Right now, with all the trade talks going on, you can't really judge who is going to be here and who is not going to be here. Everyone right now is probably on the market. I just want to be here. I have no problem with anyone here or anything. I just have to play my best and hopefully they want me back. The way of changing my style of play really doesn't matter. I might not be here next year. I might be. It all depends on what the team wants to do with me."
BTW, Sweeney hit HR #8 and #9 tonight at Charlotte. He has 4 HRs in the last 4 games. Richar hit one too.
And here's the latest Palehose 7 strip: Boston Wahful House.
