I always try to overachieve. I feel I have something to prove every day.
The Big Hurt describes me perfectly-not as a person, but as a player. It's what I do to a baseball.
I'm not cocky. But I'm very confident.
Observe Everything. Communicate Well. Draw, Draw, Draw.
I do feel I was overshadowed by some of those guys (who took steroids) . . . I had a diminished-skills clause written in after I hit 29 home runs and drove in 92 RBIs, and I think those (steroid-aided home run hitters) are partly to blame.
My focus is on a ring, and giving the best individual performance I can.
I just have to be myself, and not worry about everyone looking at me and watching.
Money doesn't motivate, but stats do.
I just don't feel like I'm old. I still feel like I've got a lot of years, a lot to give in this game, and I'm able to do it because I love to work.
I take a lot of pitches. Some guys hate to do that.
As you get old, you live and learn.
As you get older, it gets harder to get rid of that belly but I do a lot of cardio to try to stay in shape.
I always took my workouts serious because I have a football background. I came from football, so when I got to baseball, I continued my football workouts in the offseason.
I always wanted to be the strongest man on the field. Most of the time, they said I was lifting too much but I didn't believe in that at all.
A lot of guys are free swingers, but I'm up there looking for a specific pitch.
My maturity level is rising. I think there are certain situations that I'm handling better than in the past.
You just can't wake up out of bed and think you can figure out a gym. You definitely need some personal training.
I think the body responds to more reps better than heavier weight. As long as I got those reps in three or four sets, it didn't bother me and I could come down on the weight. Teams didn't want me to do it as much, but that's just the way it is.
