As I watch the Indians-Red Sox series, I can’t just sit back and watch it as a fan. I watch it as a player who is about to play that team. It’s hard not to, especially with me not seeing their pitchers as much as we’ve seen the Phillies or the Diamondbacks.
So there’s a lot to learn. I’m pretty much just watching it as a player who’s going to have to go out and compete against those guys. I look at what the bullpen throws, watching which guys bunt. It’s just like I’m watching it in the locker room before the game.
But I’m not taping it and going back over it. I’m not going that far into it. When I overanalyze anything, there’s nothing good that can come out of it. I’ve got time for that. Plus that’s why you have scouts and scouting reports, even though I’ll form my own opinion rather than take somebody else’s. But in the final analysis, I’ll take it for what it’s worth.
Today’s workout was not dedicated to another team. Our concern is ourselves, doing what we’ve been doing the way we’ve done things all year.
