Quote to note

"That's the million-dollar question. You bring a kid into your office and you tell him he's fighting for a job. And then he goes out and hits .400 and he doesn't make the team. We've all seen that. I think you have to take track record, how they look, how they fit. Batting average is so skewed in a small sample size and in this environment."
