In his regular piece "K Korner" for ESPN the Magazine, Tim Kurkjian reports that after the first exhibition game this pre-season, Ron Gardenhire found a note on his desk from Justin Morneau. It read "Gardy, I forgot to run sprints after the workout yesterday. I'm fining myself." With the note was a $100 bill.
Wowee. Justin Morneau, are you for real? Of course, his game earns mad respect. Now he's Mr. Integrity, too?
Baseball. A tonic for all that ails. The perfect accompaniment to almost every activity. A day at the ballpark. It's not asking for much. I vow to get locked in for the night one day.
"You throw the ball, you catch the ball, you hit the ball."
