Guillen: "In Living Hell"

ESPNdeportes.com is running a story in which an anonymous source is saying that Jose Guillen is in "living hell in Kansas City" and that he wants out. Here's a little more of what the source is saying:

"Guillen and Hillman are not on speaking terms, they don't talk," said the source. "Guillen is definitely not happy, he's not comfortable and he would do anything he can in economic terms to ease his way out of Kansas City."

Guillen, on the other hand, is saying that this information isn't coming from him and that he's never said that he wants out of Kansas City.

Which sounds closer to the truth based on what we know about Guillen?

Jose Guillen is cancer for any team in which he plays. The guy can hit a baseball, but his selfishness, lack of hustle, blows ups at teammates and fans, and his constant bitching about one thing or another starts to wear on you after a while.

I say trade him. The source in the ESPN story says that he is willing to defer his salary for 2009 and 2010 if it increases his trading value. Surely there's at least one team out there that is willing to take a chance on him.
