"This is kind of relaxing. I have fun playing every day, but today statistics don't count. It's different than an average day and fun to be around the ballpark today."
On the whether getting to relax during the All Star break helps: Maybe. I missed a few games for the Futures Game, so I missed a d.ouble header Today feels like a refreshing break actually.
On Futures Game: I think I was nervous taking the first couple swings at BP, then it became just any game."
On the first half ending: I've grown a lot as a player. I know what I need to do. I just need to build on that. I'm learning what adjustments work for me. Some guys may think of a swing adjustment a certain way. It's finding what works for you.
...on the second half ahead: I think it's about expanding on the season so far. Not becoming comfortable last six weeks of season, easy to coast on what you've put up. Keep both hands on the rope.
