Quite frankly when a player loses his desire to win slams, he's done in my book. Maybe he's right in playing Montreal over Cincy if it was a truly strategic move but saying winning 3 slams in a year is a joke didn't sound good.
Eh, here's how I think it went down.
Goes to Montreal "let's see how it's going"
Doesn't crash out early and makes the final "eh, now I have the points!"
Decides to have an extra week off to prep for the USO.
I don't agree with the move. I think he should have played Cincy - reaching the finals would have put him in as number one. I don't care about the USO this year, I think reaching number 1 is more important.
