Matt Downs is one humble guy

Stephen Goff talked to Matt Downs in a morning post for the Examiner today. How is he trying to stand out for the Astros?

"Every day, you could be playing for 29 other teams watching what you're doing. I'm glad the Astros have given me a chance and I hope to stay with Houston. I'm not very good in comparison to other players. I have to play harder because of that. I'm always out there doing the extra work."

That's a shocking level of humility and honesty from a player...

He said something similar in a TV interview with Greg Lucas right after he was called up. I believe it was when they were in Chicago.
