Carlos Guillen Doesn't Change Tune

Back in February, I praised Carlos Guillen as the rare marquee free agent who refused to impose a deadline for his next contract.  However, Guillen has since changed that stance.

The Tiger shortstop said yesterday that he would not negotiate a contract after the season starts.  He does wish to stay in Detroit, and talks are ongoing.

The general feeling of MLBTR readers when last surveyed was that Guillen will land a four-year, $56MM contract.  If he remains mostly at shortstop, that's a bargain.

UPDATE: We're back where we started - The Detroit News reports that Guillen will negotiate into the season as long as it's not a distraction.  Tom Gage learned that there has not been a recent offer from the Tigers.
