Feb. 19.10: Liking the attitude.

Of course it is early in spring training, but one has to like the initial attitude coming from the team’s leaders, that being David Wright and Johan Santana. On the day after Wright said the team’s goal is to win the World Series, Santana echoed that sentiment.

SANTANA: Liking his attitude.

SANTANA: Liking his attitude.


Said Santana: “My plan is to definitely win the World Series. That’s what we want to do… Whatever they want to say, that’s fine for us. We’re just going to play and have fun at the same time. That’s what baseball is all about.”

Ok, maybe they don’t see the criticism, or maybe they are ignoring it, but either way winning begins with attitude.

Part of Santana’s attitude is coming from the fact he said he arm feels good and he has full extension. Quite honestly, it’s all about pitching and that starts with him.
