A few more quotes and Scott on his arbitration
A few more Vlad quotes are below- and here’s a quick update on Luke Scott’s arbitration case. He said tonight that there really hasn’t been anything new on that front.
“Right now we are in the process of negotiaton and trying to get a deal done, we haven’t gotten to that point yet,” Scott said. “My hope is we get to an agreement and get ready for the season.”
I’ve seen him play many times. You can’t say enough about the guy. I don’t know him personally but you hear good things about him and his on the field play speaks for itself.
He’s definitely tough to defend he can do some weird things up there, and that type of hitter with power. He’s definitely tough to defend. But We don’t have to worry about that this year I’m excited.
[on if he thinks this team is headed in the right direction]
Absolutely. I think the biggest thing that everybody overlooks is we still have our young core. All our guys are up here, we got a young pitching staff, we got some position players that are young. We still, despite a few exception, got a young team. To have these guys, Vlad, D Lee, JJ Hardy, those types of guys come in to add to this lineup it can only get better.
“I am extremely excited to add a player of Vlad’s caliber to our lineup. I think it changes the whole complexion of our team. Can’t wait to see how it all plays out.”
