Open Workout

The team took the field tonight, in front of some die-hard fans and our everyday media members. Tough to say who specifically looks like the players to watch at this point. Our new manager, Pedro Lopez addressed the media before the workout, and talked about the upcoming season, his style of play, and some of his expectations.

"I'm aggressive. I like to run, I like to play hard, and I like to make things happen," he said. He talked about the heightened expectations in Brooklyn, and the careful balance between winning and development. he also acknowledged that neither he nor the players are perfect, and that there will be learning curves for all involved. "I'm not perfect," he said with a smile, "and I know my players are not either. What is important is that when we do make mistakes, we learn from them, and do what we can to make sure they don't happen again."

Pedro seems like the kind of manager Brooklyn fans will love. Everything's lining up for a fun summer at the ballpark.

More on the players soon (as i meet them and figure out who's who).

Thanks for inviting the STHs to the Open Workout! How nice to see some friends in the stands, say "Hi" to most of the staff, and (of course) get a sneak-peek at this year's players.
Looking forward to Friday!!
