    Lou Brown motivational speech

    "No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference." ~Tommy Lasorda

    I wish Lou Brown was here to give Drew Stubbs the old Willie Mays Hays speech.

    "With your speed you need to hit the ball on the ground. Every time you hit one in there air, you owe me 20 pushups."

    Lou was the boost we needed. Now let's hope he's good for some more wins.

    Yeah, I'm really glad Drew hit that last pitch on the ground.
