Good stuff, Seth!

Easy guy to pull for...

I also like how the "12 Questions With..." is really more symbolic than literal.

Yeah, I acknowledged in my e-mail to him that it was 12 questions... with multiple parts in each. HA!

Gotta like that 1.350 OPS my second year!! Oh, and the strikeout my freshman year was against Kerry Ligtenberg of the Gophers, then the Atlanta Braves! The pitch was a good 5-6 inches outside though.

CC could very well be the surprise of the season, especially with his "process" in play. Smart guy.

Good interview, Seth. But what I want to know is if he can and would be willing to play 3B. Maybe he would be the one who could push Trevor Plouffe.

I'm sure he'd be willing to, but that isn't going to happen. He's a 1st baseman.

Hitting is so much more about process than it is about results. If you can make a commitment to taking care of the process, the results will take care of themselves.


Love it. Taking that with me into 2013.

Why isn't Colabello being considered a 3B/1B combo player? Please and thank you.

His defense at third was bad, but of course he could practice at the position to get better. It certainly would benefit his chances greatly. Personally, I would like to see him on the roster soon into the season as a bench bat. And he could stay there for a couple years. He also provides more depth there, making a Morneau trade more likely.
