On playing left field:
Last year I played like five games (in left field), but other than that I think it was A-ball. I used to play all three, but then they stopped that. The angles you take on the ball are different. Even those ground balls felt different in the gap. It’s going to take some time.
I’m just happy to have a job, triple A or whatever. I’m happy to be playing. I took that drive today and I have to think positive and I have to stay focused on what I have to do. Hope for a long career ahead of me, so I’m just out there having fun.
On Hunter Pence
Go up, contribute and do what he gotta do for the team. As long as we are winning, then I’m good. I’ve got a job here. It was kind of tough on me last night, but I prayed a little bit about it and talked to my family and I thought about everything’s good. My family’s good, I’m not hurting financially or anything like that. I’m still going to live in Philly, still got a lot of great fans up there and I’ll do my thing down here. Hopefully I can be up pretty soon.
