We're doing good, we're doing good. Having looked at the roster and stats from last season we definitely have some nice players to build off of going forward to keep this train going. We have some nice starting pitching, and a few solid bats in our line up. Definitely things to be excited about.

One thing I wanted to do, was get some input from you. I mean, I know I'm the GM, but I like to make sure we are on the same page.

So tell me...if you had a shopping list of what you want to see brought in for the upcoming season, what would one or two of those things be? You were around this team last year so you know more about the potential deficiencies.

I'd say we could improve at first, third, and catcher. Our depth is lacking as well. Luckily we have a strong pitching staff to overcome those deficiencies.

Ah glad to know we are on the same page here. Looking at the stats those were some spots I knew we needed to improve, as well as some useful youth depth.

Now with that out of the way...tell me more about your style of management. What do you prefer in a team. Power bats? Pitching? Speed? That kind of stuff.

I lean slightly to a more potent line-up, but the pitching staff we have here is pretty darn good. I'm a situational manager, so I like to have a variety to choose from, especially in our depth. Pinch running, pinch hitting, bunting, it all just depends on what the analytics say.

Excellent seems like we are on the right page. Im looking into a few options to help out lineup so hopefully it will be more potent then what weve had here. Add that to or pitching and man, weve got something good cooking.

Are there any players on the team we should avoid cutting or trading at all costs? Obviously Im not going to cut the big boys, but if theres some fringe players youd like to see kept around, Im all ears for that. I dont want to mess too much with the chemistry but I would like to make this team better.

I like our team, so I am not going to advocate to cut anyone. Sure there is a few players that could be moved if you have someone in mind that'll improve the team. But those decisions are yours boss. I'll coach whoever is on the team going into spring camp.

Excellent. And I assume by that same token that you are happy with the current staff you have working with you?

Excellent, Im glad to hear it. Truth be told Im not looking to fire anyone off the staff so glad to know you like the guys youve got.

Speaking of, are you able to tell me a little about each of them? I understand that they may still be detained taking their photos for their ID badges for this season.

We had a really good up and coming coach in Jon Loock. Really has worked our pitching staff well and they all seem to really like his technique. We'll have to really worry about another team stealing him from us a manager at some point, although even he would admit, he's not quite ready for that leap yet. Mike Figueras has a knack for coaching up power hitters and he too would make a great manager, even now really. So we're lucky to have what we have.
