I don't really like to listen to the guy talk in press conferences, but I like Mike Quade. He's almost unquotable, but at least he doesn't appear to care very much about spin and psychological manipulation. He pretty much just thinks out loud in front of the press, which should be funny to watch over time.
"You look at this club, as I do right now, and you say, 'Who's a perennial leadoff guy?'" Quade said. "'Who's the prototypical leadoff guy? Do we have one?' And I would say, 'I don't think so.' OK, when the answer is 'I don't think so,' I can mix and match. Maybe somebody asserts himself as that guy, again, keeping an open mind and just making sure you weigh all the variables."
I like the approach.
