I know what my job is. I know what I've got to do. I've got to keep getting better.
I love taking hits away from guys and seeing their reaction.
Every year I try to make adjustments and learn.
You play for the team, you don't play for the fans.
My focus is to stay up the middle. If I'm a little early I'll hit it to left, if I'm a little late, I'll hit it to right.

I just go out there and try to help my teammates any way I can. They are on me a lot to be in the lineup and do stuff for the team, but sometimes it's just...frustrating.
I want to be more consistent. I wanna get hits. I wanna get my average back up where people think I can hit.
