“In the middle of center field, he blew out his ankle with no one around him.”

“He was dealing with the demon of drugs and in the midst of really struggling, he was poison in the dugout.” 

“You have got to have a team leader.” 

“The longer that negative player is allowed to participate on that team, the more damage control that needs to happen.” 

“Get rid of the poison first.” 

“Team members need to be communicated with so they know they are valuable.” 

“Sometimes leaders throw themselves on the sword for the betterment of their teammate.” 

“Would you hire yourself as a doctor for your practice?”

“Every day before the game The Rockies have a team meeting… if it is good enough for professional athletes, maybe we should learn something from that.”
