I'd love to face Craig Kimbrel--Just to see if I could make contact.

Not a fan of the one game playoff. Too many weird things can happen (as Braves fans saw last year) in one game. Would love to see it be at least a best-of-3 series.

I'm a huge Wilco fan and have gotten to see them a few times live. Incredible! As for other artists/bands I'm listening to:

-The Civil Wars -The Avett Brothers -Markarians -The War on Drugs

Walk-out songs weren't really around when I was playing, but if I were playing today it would probably be "Daft Punk is Playing at my House" by LCD Soundsystem. Not sure why, but that song gets me pumped!

Unofficial referee.

Both positions have their pros and cons, but catching was definitely my favorite. My defense at that position was a bit of a liability though, so I was moved to OF and felt much more comfortable there.

After playing catcher one game (a game that featured several stolen bases) in spring training, my dad was speaking with a scout and asked him what he thought of my defensive performance. The scout told him he thought I would have played amazingly if guys had been trying to steal centerfield.

I've always said--anyone who admitted to using steroids, or tested positive, shouldn't get in.

  • Tough one. I'm gonna take the easy way out and say it's a tie between Pete Rose and Mike Schmidt.

  • Not fun.

  • Hitting a homerun off of Nolan Ryan.
