Re: Pitching, defense enhanced this spring
I personally don't see any downside to playing smart, fundamental baseball. Whether you have guys that can hit lots of homeruns, a gap to gap bunch of hitters, a small ball type offense, or whatever, it just doesn't hurt to play fundamentally sound, smart baseball where you don't give opportunities or games away. To think otherwise is just "baseball ignorant."
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
