Meck: I'm going with Vijay Singh.
Meck: Yunel Escobar .. Your quote that resonates re Yunel:
'This kid's not afraid of anything.' - BC
Meck: I guess when you travel 90 miles [ from Cuba] on a fishing boat ..
not knowing if you're going to make it .. You have no fear ?

It's so important to have players who understand their role ?

Meck: This is your 26th year of managing .. Have you ever had switch hitters batting 3 and 4
in your line-up card ? [ Chipper and Tex]
Bobby: No .. 'I don't remember that. It's a real weapon to have .. Really.'

about bringing in a veteran catcher like Javy Lopez to backup McCann ?
