Baseball, itself, teaches you lessons. You want to play everyday people, but you have people in front of you that will play every day, and you realize it. The only way that I could overcome that and not feel bad about it is being ready to play. I made up my mind and from that point on, I have been fine.

Everything was different, and the way they ran the team was totally different.

There's a lot of pain. I feel like I pulled it.

We let each other know right away. We want each other to have good seasons.

I don't come into the clubhouse and pat guys on the (butt). They know where they can find me.

I still come to the stadium early, and I keep working on things. If I get my opportunity, I will be ready, because I have not been wasting my time.
