Revealing interview with Mark Worrell by Dustin Mattison:
DM: … Has the team given you any indication of its plans for you for the future?
MW: No, they haven’t given me any indication. To be quite honest with you, I was hoping they would get rid of me. I would like to be given a fair chance. They haven’t given me a fair chance at all. Every year, I’ve put up great numbers, out battled my competition, and up to this point I have nothing to show for it but 13 days in the big league. With almost any other team, I think I would have had a real shot.
For the sake of Worrell’s sanity, I hope he is included in the deal for Khalil Greene.
UPDATE: And just as he aired his grievances 19 days early of Festivus, it turns out the trade is Mark Worrell and a PTBNL for Greene. Padres fans can click here and here to read more about Worrell. The Padres seem to have a knack for building a solid bullpen undervalued relievers, so I’m sure he will fit right in.
