Jeremy Reed on KJR
The M’s probable centerfielder was on KJR this morning, doing the usual “get to know the new player” interview. For what it’s worth, I thought he came across as well-spoken, intelligent and humble. He spoke repeatedly about not being handed the job, and needing to go out and “make the team” above all else. I also like that when asked about his approach at the plate, he said he loved to draw walks, used a line-drive swing and would hit to all fields. He said he’ll pull the ball when neccessary and thinks that more power will come eventually, though he certainly doesn’t consider himself a power hitter.
The usual fluff, I know, but he certainly said all the right things. Oh, and he was already in Arizona working out, even though he doesn’t have to be there for a few more days.
