You really don’t have to talk to anybody. Coming up through the minor leagues, you can just watch other teams. You can watch their pre-game, what they do as opposed to what we do, as far as how extensive—sometimes it can be annoying. Sometimes it can be a little ticky-tack, what we do as an organization. But in the long run, it helps us. It helps us defensively, and even the things we do in batting practice. In our second round of BP, we go through situations like getting guys over. Coming up, I used to be like, "Man, why do we have to take infield when other teams never take infield—or outfield,"or "Why do we have to do this? Why are we taking all this fungo when the other team didn’t?’"But when you get up to the big-league level, you see how it paid off.Denard Span from BP, on the Twins expectations for young players. He also talks about how the Twins tried to turn him into a slap hitter and only when he gave up on that did he become a major leaguer. So, some good, some bad.
