Quote of the day:

“With not having to worry about that and getting that taken care of and out of the way, I can set my focus straight to baseball and not have any of that on my mind when I’m trying to go out and do my work. Trying to pick up a slider breaking at 90-something miles an hour, that’s definitely a lot easier. That’s good for the mental aspect of the game.” — Jeff Keppinger
