Doyle day recap, balk wins game
TNT on the return, including this sad bit:
Snelling has heard wide-ranging advice in his attempt to bounce back from another serious injury, mainly suggestions about altering his headlong approach to playing.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“For me, holding back, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s tough to do,Ã¢â‚¬Â Snelling said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“But I have to do it. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m getting hurt for a reason.Ã¢â‚¬Â

“There’s a lot of baseball to be played. Where this team is going to settle in, we’re still determining that. That’s why I said at least three weeks ago that it’s usually 40-50 games into the season before you can start making predictions about what’s going on and start projecting things. It’s still early in the season. It doesn’t feel like it’s early, but it is early.”
40, 50 games, huh? I guess we’ll talk to you again in a week, if you’re still around.
