I don't get it. I thought Juan Gone was good friends with Beltran before he joined the Royals. I'd figure he at least make some friends on the team through Beltran when he arrived at KC.

Wonder what caused him to be a hermit all of a sudden

I agree. It's too early to drop him.

If he does turn it around it may not be in KC....a video clip is being shown today of him in the celebration after Sweeney's walk-off hit Thursday...he looked so pissed...he didnt congratulate anyone...he was in the on deck circle when the hit happened and he walked away pissed that Sweeny got the game-winner...everyone else was celebrating after a much needed series win....and maybe some good fortunes coming and all he thought of was how he was left out....

I think Juan may get traded before the ASB....he is already a cancer on this team it is looking like....and Thursday wasnt the first episode eitehr...

If he isn't traded soon, he'll just fake yet another injury that no one can seem to diagnose to weasal out of the rest of the year.

Gonzalez is this generation's Dick Allen -- someone who posts beautiful numbers but does so much to pull the club down that he is a net loss. He's the only player in MLB I refuse to have on my team.
