Lopez wants to stay in Arizona

SEATTLE -- Felipe Lopez is well aware that with the D-backs' fading playoff hopes, he could find himself on another team before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.

That does not mean he is looking to leave.

 

"I want to stay," Lopez said. "I'm happy here. I like the organization, I like how they work."

The D-backs entered play Sunday 11 games below the .500 mark and in last place in the NL West. It's certainly not what Lopez thought he was getting into when he inked a one-year deal in December for $3.5 million.

"When I signed here I thought we were going to be a winning team and I still think we have a team that can compete," he said. "It's just going rough for us right now. We've got a lot of people struggling, playing out of position. I still believe that this team can do it. Maybe I'm stupid for saying that, but spending time with these guys and knowing how talented they are, I believe it."

Funny, everyone was just talking earlier this week about how he needs to be dealt, too.
