Jonny Sounds Off

 Jonny Gomes, from Baseball America:

If I say I commit to winning, he's on my team for sure. I think everybody wearing a Tampa Bay hat and uniform wants that guy here. I don't think it's a good day on the players' end and for everybody in a uniform.

I don't necessarily disagree with Longoria's demotion, and I think the writing has been on the wall since before spring training started that he wasn't going to make the team -- remember when it was said that Longoria could bat .500 and still not make the squad?  Yeah.  Well, as you saw, Jonny Gomes isn't happy.  I'd be interested to find out how many players on the club feel this way, as Gomes isn't the type to beat around the bush.
