McTaggart's new blog post says that Brad Mills has spring fever, and can't wait to get started!
Mills has received nothing but praise about the way he handles himself from players such as Geoff Blum, Roy Oswalt, Lance Berkman and Moehler. The first-year manager appears to have won over the players and can probably go ahead and start tinkering with a lineup, considering the Astros are done shopping for the winter. Next comes the hard part. Bringing it all together in time for Opening Day.
Yeah, I think that Blum and Oswalt would praise a cucumber if it meant not playing for Cecil Cooper...
I think the whole ballclub has been received very well. I'm not talking about me. It's the organization and what they've done for this community and what they've done to get ready for the season has all been received very well. We have some great fans and we're looking forward to Spring Training."
