What Tejada said to Manzella

In Bernardo Fallas' Notes column we get a glimpse at what Miguel Tejada taught Tommy Manzella last September, when Manzella was doing all that sitting around.

Manzella:
“We talked about how important it is for you to be out there every day. He said that, obviously, it is a long season and your body is going to bark at you a little bit and tell you that you need a day off. But he said some of those days, when he felt like that, that's when he played his best games.

“He said it is really important to pace yourself — it's a long season — but understand that you're needed on the field every day. And when you're less than 100 percent, you make sure you keep the same kind of approach in a game because you don't want anyone around you to know whether you're feeling good that day or feeling a little stiff.”


I guess "Avoid Jeremy Schaap" was just a given.
