The Zen of Andre Ethier, Part Tao

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."

He's starting to sound a lot like Manny. But a much more well rounded version of Manny.

Is it me or he looks like he's receiving classes of the use of the Force?, he gives me that feeling...

Not pictured: a heap of slain Clone Troopers.

I can't sense any Jedi presence in Andre. But maybe I'm not attuned to the Force like karina...

I'm afraid i'm no Leia, Jaina, Mara Jade, even Ahsoka...

However, i'm tuned to the podcast of TheForce. net podcast... that's something...

Orel, the way Mr. Ethier is hitting, we could clone him...does someone have Kamino on speed dial?

Karina, you just out-geeked me. Impressive, most impressive.

*blushing*... i'd say geeks always find a way to unite...and i received some sweet classes from the ultimate Star Wars geek, so you should give most of the credit to him.
