Yahoo's Tim Brown talked to Gary Matthews Jr., who is unhappy about his projected role as the Angels' fourth or fifth outfielder. Matthews didn't exactly publicly demand a trade, but he said things like "We have a problem" and "It's going to have to get resolved." Problem is, no team seems interested in taking on the $33MM owed to Matthews. The Angels would have to eat money or match up with another bad contract, and they might just prefer to keep Matthews in a reserve role.
Over at his blog, Torii Hunter tries to explain where his teammate is coming from.
