Somewhere, Michael Tucker Is Smiling (Probably Sammy, Too)
"They told me I hopefully would start swinging a bat in the first week of spring training, but I'm not in a rush...That was a really serious injury. It was pretty much a reconstructed shoulder. It's going to take me a while to heal and get that shoulder strong. I'm going to take everything step by step, and when it's ready, it's ready. If I have to miss, you know, the first month, the first three weeks, I'm going to miss it." (Jose Guillen via AP/WJLA.com 1/27/2006)
Ok, so Jose is now singing a slightly different tune than three weeks ago:
"I feel great...I'm doing perfect, better than anybody expected me to be. I'm so happy about it." (Jose Guillen via Washington Post 1/06/2006)
Not good, but then again, not entirely surprising.
Jose also had some interesting (but again, not entirely surprising) things to say about his friend, Mr. "There Is No I In Team", including:
"He told me that he's not an outfielder." (Jose Guillen via AP/WJLA.com 1/27/2006)
