Q: How do you respond to some who have called you overrated?
ANS: “Look, I just show up at the park, put on my uniform, and give it all I have. I’m both thrilled and honored to wear the Sea Gull uniform and thank Mr. Sather for having enough confidence in me to offer me a contract to play in Minnesota.”
Q: C’mon on ‘Shotgun’, give us a prediction for the coming year. Your many fans in both Detroit and now Duluth would like to get your take.
ANS: “Again, I leave those types of things to the sports bloggers. My job is to show up everyday and perform. But, since you asked, .351/.404/.465 would not be out of the question.”
Thank you, Shotgun, you are a class act.
