Guillen is either schizophrenic, retarded, misunderstood, or smarter than us all.

First he says he's upset with the medical staff for not knowing when he first hurt his shoulder that the tendon was torn in half. Then he says it's his fault for continuing to play on it. Kudos to him for being a man and playing hard for the team (Note to Ryan Church: don't be afraid to play with a hangnail kiddo). But don't you think playing on a bad shoulder for the whole season might have made the tear worse? Resulting in it being torn in half when he had surgery?

Second, he says he's still healing, so he can't guarantee that he'll play opening day. But then in the same breath says everyone knows he will.

Third, he says he doesn't want any controversies with the team this year, after just calling Soriano out.

I have no clue what to expect from Guillen. I think he's outsmarted me. I'll be real happy if he plays on opening day, but if he doesn't I'll wishing he heals quickly. He's masterful.

And you know what? I'm thankful for it. I'm glad we have some personality on the team. With Guillen and Hernandez, no one can really ever understand what those two mean. Hernandez will say he's shutting it down for the rest of the season, and then go pitch a two-hit shutout and get a no decision.

Thanks guys, bring on some more "Nationals Non Sequitors"

We're in agreement, SomeGuy. Guillen is absolutely intriguing - I couldn't believe some of the quotes - and I have no idea what to make of him calling out Soriano. What is that? The easy thing to miss is the fact that he was in camp before, well, everybody. He works harder than anyone, and he wants to make sure you know it.
