"Right now," Green said, "this lineup definitely requires me to have a year equal to or better than any I've ever had.Oh, you're right, Shawn. But I guess that must mean you're not a team player. You have too much entheta, or something. Repeat after me: the new regime's only been here a couple of weeks. They have a great game plan. It was much better than Cats, I want to see it again and again...
"I'm going to try and do it, but I still feel that what the club needs most is another hitter for the middle of the lineup.
"I mean, it's difficult going to spring training knowing your lineup is such that a lot of guys have to have career years if we're going to have a good offensive team.
"That's not the right way to go into the season."
Why is Newhan publishing this stuff? Does he want Shawn gone?
Update: Another possibility: Shawn wants off the team, bad. Read this as a trade-me plea. After last year, I don't see how that could happen unless Greenie has a monster first half.
