I thought it was ok to touch on a couple of the highlights from the shiny new sunday Journal-Sentinel I get every week now. Lots more if you're a subscriber. (Not trying to convince anyone, just pointing that out so I can hit the elements of the fair use doctrine. The quotes below probably represent about 5% of the entire content of the interview. Kyle or one of the mods can delete if they think I've crossed the line.)
"You're not going to be able to replace what [Prince] did offensively.... With the personnel we have, it allows you to run more. But if we're running into a lot of bad outs, you need to do something about it."
Not exactly the St. Crispin's Day speech is it?
"I don't want to say I need to see a lot from (Mat Gamel)... Some guys are really quick starters and some guys aren't. If I go just by spring training I'd say that I need to see that he's driving the ball and getting good at bats... He needs to feel that we're not going to just give him a week and say "Hey, you didn't hit. We're going to change." (Actual Ken Macha quote.) He's going to get a good shot to win the job and get a good shot in the season to stick with him for a while to see what we have."
"Our infield defense will be better with the personnel we have." (Translation: Yuni's gone, so we won't shift like we're playing badminton against a one armed opponent anymore.) We played some poor games defensively in the last series we played against St. Louis. But it looked a lot worse than it was because (the Cardinals) didn't make one mistake." Wrong. Just wrong.
