Someone should have handed Cat some lumber to knock on with his forehead:
Frank Catalanotto: "There's no way we can get off to the start we did last year. Our April was terrible and we had tons of injuries. That can't happen again. Take that away, look at how we finished last year and all the players we added and it can only get better. It can't get any worse."
We all know how the beginning of the season started last year. I must be in the mood for torture and if you are too well here's the link for TR's Friday Happy Hour at the Elysian Fields Bar & Grill from March 27, 2008. Just interesting to see how not much changes.
My other favorite quote:
Ron Washington on Spring Training: "We got out of here healthy. There's a big difference from Spring Training this year and last year. This year we just got better as each day came down."
I don't remember good health being a big part of any period last season, but I guess when the prospect of a new season is in front of you the glass tends to appear half full. I know it's that way for me!
