This one in video form. It comes at the 2:45 mark of this 3:00 video over at Boston.com. Best part: totally unprompted. Just blurts it out when talking about stealing bases.

But watch the whole thing because at the beginning he talks about how great it was that he failed at the major league level last year. Really: “it’s great that I failed.” Which, while it’s clear what he’s actually getting at, is a surprisingly aggressive way to couch the whole “learn from adversity” concept.

We heard about Melky Cabrera being in The Best Shape of His Life last week. Well, he didn’t work out alone. He had teammate Jose Bautista with him, and Bautista characterizes the purpose of those workouts:

“It was kind of easy and natural and we just decided to start earlier than we normally do,” Bautista said. “We are both coming off injuries and we wanted to try to get into the best shape of our lives before spring training started.”

Good for you, Jose. Good for you.
