How Holliday survives ‘grind’ that got Carpenter : Sports

“There is a group of players that have extremely elevated levels of skill, and then there are a bunch who are similar,” Holliday said. “You do see guys who are extremely talented that for whatever reason they couldn’t handle it mentally or physically or didn’t have the work ethic. What separates the guys who are similar is a lot of how they handle adversity, how they are able to deal with failure, how they’re able to deal with success, and how they’re able to grind it out.”
