Quickly cruising around the local papers this morning, we’ve got Sam Borden’s interview with Steve Swindal, Jim Baumbach on the budding relationship between Robinson Cano and Larry Bowa, Don Amore catches up with Andy Phillips, Mark Feinsand details Eric Duncan’s fine spring thus far, an amusing piece on Jason Giambi’s new workout partner, Bob Klap on Lee Maz, and finally, Tyler Kepner catches up with our boy Bernie:
“It’s all in the way you look at it,” Williams said Monday after lifting weights long after most of his teammates had left. “You can look at it and say, ‘Oh, they’re messing with me, they don’t respect me, this and that.’ But you’ve got to make your choice.
“I think if I look at it in a negative way, it would just put a bad taste in my mouth that I shouldn’t have, because there’s been so much positive and so much greatness that I’ve witnessed in the last 15 years. You want to remember the positives. At this point in my life, this is gravy, man. This is a great time of my life.”
Bernie has always reminded me of the children’s story Ferdinand the Bull. Nice to see that he continues to stop and smell the flowers.
