My message to the team has been to stay consistent. We can’t get too high and we can’t get too low, because the baseball gods will make you pay. This game has a way of kicking you in the butt really quickly. That would be the advice I give to all players that are being drafted this year: Stay humble and work very hard every day because you are getting paid to play baseball. Never take it for granted because there is always going to be someone ready to take your job.
We get Atlanta coming to town today for the first time. I’m always excited to see my buddy Greg Walker; he’s a hell of a hitting coach and an even better friend. After that we get some more Interleague Play. It doesn’t get any easier with Boston and the Rays, so let’s go!
