From "Andre Ethier is finally cool, calm and collected" by Dylan Hernandez at the LA Times:
"I think sometimes that care and that angst of wanting to be that certain person will just get in the way," Ethier said. "Sometimes you have to let that go." [...]
Of the playing time issue, Ethier said, "I just don't care anymore....It's a fine line, but I think if you play with more care, sometimes it can hinder you. You have to be free to go out there and take chances, take risks on the basepaths to defense to hitting."
