He just amazes me with what he can do.
I saw the tapes [from last year], and I saw a guy that was uncomfortable and not attacking the ball. But we met and everything went well. We made a lot of progress. I think he's very hungry. I think you're going to see a very different Jeremy Reed.
They talk about his defense, but what I saw offensively was not a weak shortstop. He's got more strength than I was led to believe. Anybody can do the drills when the ball is coming at you at 50 miles an hour (in batting practice), but I like what I see early.
Rome can't be built in a day and I know there's been a lot of good people here before. It's a challenge for me certainly. Hopefully, I can help and I can make a difference.
In the middle we weren't very good today. They didn't particularly have a good day, but it's just one day out of all these. I thought the energy was there. The thought process was there, but the execution was not.
