Jonathan Van Every interview

This interview is somewhat interesting -- it's a Sox fan/Baseball Prospectus author talking with Jonathan Van Every, who was picked up from the Indians this fall as a minor league free agent. Really, I only found this interesting because he didn't seem like he was super pleased with the way his development had been handled by the Indians:

DL: Were you being asked to do things that you felt were maybe not in your best interest as a player?

JVE: I think so. I don't think that it was crazy for them to ask those things of me, but I was kind of going outside of my game and thinking too much on the negative side. I was thinking about not striking out, not doing this, not doing that, instead of about what I could do to get better or how I could get more hits. Thinking more on the positive side and developing a new routine helped me tremendously.
