BALTIMORE, MD - MAY 20: Second baseman Alexi Casilla #12 of the Baltimore Orioles throws to first base to get out Curtis Granderson #14 of the New York Yankees (not pictured) for the third out of the fourth inning at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on May 20, 2013 in Baltimore, Maryland.
The swing is getting there ... No matter what, you’re going to run through tough at-bats. No matter what you do in extended spring training or in the minors, there’s nothing that can replicate what you find here. Physically, I’m ready.
I like the idea that it is 2013, and since there are things available, at least consider the idea of taking a look at them ... It is a very traditional sport, but a lot of these things weren't available back when the game was originated. But now that you do have the ability to slow it down, freeze it, this that and the other, it's definitely something to look into.More quotes »
