"I talked to him yesterday…and he seems OK. He knows he’s 0-for-17 right now…Anything under .260 is cause of concern because he was way over .300 for much of the season. He says he’s not fatigued. You’ll have to play him in the field at least one game at Chicago because Holliday will probably DH to preserve his leg."
"He can’t let it go. Maybe that makes him the player he is. But there is a time you have to shrug your shoulders (and tell yourself you’re better than this). And he is better than this. He set that incredibly high standard after his 2013 season, it’ll be hard for him or anybody else to match the year he had then. He doesn’t have to be that good, but he needs to be better than this."
