He said, 'I'm know I'm screwing you up.' I said, Joe you've know me 10 years. I've always written that way.' It pumps the kids up, too. They like it. It makes them feel special.

It's a credit to his tremendous dedication to it. It's been unbelievable.

What Josh needs to figure out is a style of catching. Once he figures out his style and what he's comfortable with, he has a chance to do it. That's the same thing with all of them. They have to figure out a style, an approach.

He's done everything we've asked him to do. He's adjusted, changed every technique. He's gone in a completely different direction. He's not scared to try something new. And he's stayed with it. And he's progressed daily.

I've had this question asked probably 20 times after [a few] days of drills. Well, can he do it? Yeah, if the game was drills, sure. But the game is the game. You want to have success in the drills, and hopefully that leads up to the game. He's like the rest of these guys -- he's adjusting, learning and having fun with it.
