He's a greedy, money-hungry, cry-baby, whining, bitch that's always "injured"... I don't care if he bats while doing a hand-stand, we learned our lesson once with this guy and IMO he shouldn't be welcomed back. Juan is a "me-first" type of player... I don't want any of those guys on our "team"...


I wouldn't give this guy one million a year to be our DH...

He turned down $140 Million so he could play elsewhere for far less.

Other than that, I completely agree with you.

I am shocked to hear this from a guy who loves to defend T.O. I dont want Gonzo either but you are always the first person to defend TO who is the ultimate "me first" player.

I don't see TO as a me-first player (center of attention maybe, but not me-first... from what I see he complains more when the team loses, not when he doesn't get the ball)... I don't see him as being greedy either... I think he deserved every bit of what's he's made where he's made it. I think Baltimore did try to take advantage of his situation, and I think his contract in Phili was disingenuous and he would have been cut the following year... I also think his criticism of McNabb was appropriate.

Furthermore... At least he EARNS his paycheck... Regardless of what anyone thinks of him his recovery to play in the SB was amazing...

Contrast that with Juan's "sore back" "sore ankel" "sore pinky toe" and there you have the reason I can't stand Gonzalez....
