Shea Hillenbrand says he is a competitor, and not a "yes" person.
While Hillenbrand himself can be blunt, he paints a picture of Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi as being equally outspoken. And very controlling.
"J.P. tried to bury me," Hillenbrand said. "J.P. will deny it, but he told my agent, Dan Lozano, they'd bury me ... keep cutting down on my playing time, unless I got in line."
Should he have toed the line in the Jays clubhouse for the good of the team? Tell us what you think by having your say in our forum.
