Mills won't be afraid to rip one out

An interview with Brad Mills by McTaggart.

On respect and communication:
"It is definitely going to be one of the biggest things I'm going to bring with me from Terry. He knows how to balance that relationship with the players. Plus, when you have to tell a guy sometimes something he doesn't want to hear, I think Terry does a good job of that balance. And that's a big thing that I want to bring with me."

Things like, "Hey. Run to first base."

On Al Pedrique:
"I have all the confidence in the world in him. Our relationship has taken off on the right foot, and I am excited about him having that responsibility and being with me. The six years I've been with Terry and those experiences, I think I'm more inclined to give him a lot of responsibility and just kind of watch how he does some of those things. But I have no qualms about him. He's going to be an absolutely outstanding bench coach, and a big support for me."
