Must find trusty “How to Convert Steep Percentage Slopes to Degrees” cheat sheet.
On Ian Kinsler’s struggles in 2012:
Ian had an off year, there’s no getting around that. Not just offensively, he struggled defensively, he struggled running the bases, so it was not a good year for Ian Kinsler. But Ian Kinsler is also very talented and he’s very prideful, and do I think he’ll come back next year and do much better than he did this year? Yeah, I do. I think he’ll come back and have a good year. Do I think this will have a snowball effect on him and what we saw this year will reoccur next year? No, I don’t.
On if he expects Michael Young to be back in 2013:
Yes, I do. Michael is our veteran player. He played a role this year as DH and as the ultimate utility man for us, and so do I expect him back? Yeah. And do I think he’ll play that role? Yeah, I do in some degree in that role.
On Derek Holland’s season:
If you asked me what’s my disappointment in the year Derek had, it’s his inconsistency. I think that’s part of his youth and maturity and you would hope that we see improvement in that. He’s very talented but he has to channel those energies in the right direction.
