The managers are giving good quotes today


Been a good morning, quote-wise, around spring training:

McClendon: a lesson in some wise hands-off managing. Price: a lesson in plain speaking. Yost: Well, I think he’s calling all of us baseball writers “fluffers” and that’s kind of rude, but he gets the plain spoken award as well.

Here’s hoping managers remain as loose and direct as all of this once games start and things get testy. I doubt they will, but it sure would be nice to see.
