Huh.

Why of earth would he (or anyone) want to spend another year there?  Or is he assuming this regime won’t last the year, and he’ll then have a better shot with a new regime next season?

I almost wonder if Howson didn’t want Prospal to go to free agency so he could use him this season as trade bait.

Scotty… a little advice…don’t tweet stuff like this.  Let your PR staff put together a press release and let them handle the baby food.  Save your tweets for when you make a big trade.

Per Aaron Portzline, Howson wants his voice to remain in the room…wants him to keep mentoring players…and promised in a handshake deal that he’d have a position with the team after retiring.
