It's already in the Sun Deck, but I thought I'd post this here:

Pretty good little update on Pete. You can see what he does every day. His passion certainly comes through. You feel sorry for him that he's sitting there instead of on an MLB bench. I almost wondered if there was a way you could have a Johnny Narron type of guy follow him around to keep him "good", but that's not practical. It's almost a certainty that he'd slip. But what if he were a hitting coach, what would it matter?

No, I don't feel sorry for him. He thought he was bigger than the game. He is no paying the price for it.
