Jeff Cirillo-ALL TIME LOSER
What Onions on this guy! He turns down a trade from the Mariners to the Mets, because he'd rather sit on the bench in Seattle than ride the pine in NY. He never says "Hey send me to the Mets and will fight like hell to be the starting 3rd baseman". The Mariners want no part of this guy and apparently Mariner rookie GM Bill Bavasi never read Cirillo's contract, which includes a no trade clause that has the Mets and Yankees on it. So, the Mariners may have to eat his contract and Cirillo can spend all summer with his wife and kids, all expenses paid.
