Jordan Schafer was "excited" to leave Houston

Trust me, broheim, the feeling is mutual.

Jordan Schafer told MLB.com yesterday that he just couldn't handle all the losing in Houston in 2012:
"I was excited just to get out of that situation. More than anything, I couldn't take that much losing. I've never lost at anything like that. It was kind of like you were just expected to lose. ... That's just not a good feeling."

Oh, but wait. He's changed! He's more mature! Not as much swagger! (Basically the same thing we were told about Schafer heading into 2012). Yes, the Astros were expected to lose a lot. And, yes, it had a little to do with the CF posting up a .591 OPS.

I bet he wasn't nearly as excited as I was when I heard he was leaving

He is too baked to ever get really excited.

He was so excited about leaving Houston that he was "late" arriving at Atlanta camp and with the two Uptons and Hayward, will not be seeing a whole lot of playing time. He will be lucky to make the team.

Will be interested to see if he even makes the Braves; and if not, why would you keep a guy like that around on your minor league team, setting an "example" for the younger guys ? Body language makes Jeff weaver look like a gunnery sergeant....
