    Burton Interview Archived

    Yesterday's in-studio visit with Jared Burton is now archived and available for on-demand listening.

    It's on my website - www.danscottshow.com - down toward the bottom of the front page.

    Excellent interview, Dan -- thanks for posting. I'm impressed by Burton. You can tell he genuinely likes baseball. I was impressed by his insights re: Bruce, Cueto, Phillips, leadership, plate approach -- and more. He knew quite a bit about Gomes, too. Great stuff.

    It's nice to hear a guy just talk about the game and his life and not have it boiled down to a bunch of cliches. Seems like you and Jared get along pretty well. Really great stuff, Dan.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Doesn't everything this guy does remind ya of a real down to earth Cowboy. Jared "Eastwood" Burton! Great interview Dan, very fluid, nice approach.

    I love the way Burton talks. He sounds like a guy who should be driving a coal truck somewhere in southern West Virginia instead of pitching in the major leagues.
