RoyCoup Sports Press — Let’s get back into some baseball with our first “Your Daily Sports Cliche” of the 2015 season which comes courtesy of Matt Shoemaker of the The Angels Angels of Anaheim.
Competition’s a driving factor in this game. I mean, you uh always wanna get better, and if you better yourself, you’re gonna better the team. So, it’s uh gonna be a really exciting spring, and uh a really exciting season.
I felt good. I felt good out there today. I worked on a few things, threw some pitches in situations I wouldn’t normally throw them in. You know, again, this is still spring training. I’m getting where I need to be, you know? Things are progressing as they should. Just go out there, get my work in and build up my pitch count to be ready for opening day.
There’s something to be said about team spirit. When your going through the dog days of the season and you don’t respect the guys around you, and they don’t respect you, then you won’t have that extra oomph to push you through the end with a strong finish. You win as a collective, and when you fail, you fail as a collective.
