Joe MaddonJoe Maddon was a guest on ESPN Radio’s Mike&Mike show this morning and he had some interesting things to say about a few players. You can listen to the entire interview at this link

On Wil Myers: “He’s a different cat, in all the good ways. He’s very loose. He’s a lot of fun. We have a great time with him…Honestly, I often compare him to [Wil Ferrell's character in "Talladega Nights"] Ricky Bobby, because that’s who he is. I see it in there every time. He wakes up in the morning and he pees excellence. That’s who he is.”

On Desmond Jennings: “This guy is very strong…He’s going to hit homers. He’s going to hit 20-plus homers at some point without even trying because he has this real easy swing and the ball comes off hot. [but he needs to work on his] plate discipline, meaning that here’s a guy that can really be the catalyst of a lineup. He needs to get on base about 35% of the time and if he does, the havoc he is going to create is going to be tremendous for everybody else…[He's] a very good center fielder. We’re working on some things with him out there. I think if he really wants to become an elite player, which he does, I think the next level is better plate discipline on a consistent basis.”

On Logan Forsythe: “He does nothing but hit the ball hard. He just hits the ball hard. It’s incredible the hard contact with this guy. ”

    Can we please have t-shirts made up saying “We Pee Excellence?” Much better than 9=8.

      I can see it now.
      “We pee excellence” above a picture of a mid-flush commode with the NY and Bos logos swirling down the drain.

      • Mr. Smith 1980 says:

        hmmm… on second thought that might seem like they pee NY and Bos logos which could be wrongly interpreted as the aforementioned excellence… maybe your simple idea was better.
