Understandable... I'd much rather stay on a team that is 27 games under .500 than go to a team that has a chance to win a championship. Reminiscent of Kenny Rogers refusing to be traded to the Reds a few years back to stay on the last place Rangers. Whatever.
I'd much rather start for a non-playoff team over sitting on the bench for a playoff team but that might just be me.
Not me, if I were in his shoes - the guy is 37 years old, nearing the end of a career where he has sniffed a title once, 10 years ago. We're only talking 2+ months here, then he could go back and be the 3rd outfielder (if he's lucky) on a crappy team next year. Why not take a shot at a ring?
