Dyson’s trash talking
Some interesting comments today from Kansas City’s Jarrod Dyson, who made headlines last night for saying that the ALCS is not going back to Baltimore.
Here is what Dyson said this afternoon from the Royals workout:
“I’ll just tell you this, man. If we win Game 3, it’s going to be hard for them to look themselves in the mirror and say, ‘We can win the next four.’ That’s tough to do, man. … Everything must click. I’m just being honest. If we take Game 3, I guarantee theere’s going to be multiple people over there saying, ‘Man, ain’t no way we can beat these guys four games in a row.’ It can be done, but not everybody’s going to be on the same page. There’s going to be some people ready to go home. There’s going to be people not cheering in the dugout. Just like if it was vice versa on this side, it might be the same way. But we’re in a good position, we’re enjoying it, and we’re going to take advantage of it.
We came in as an underdog. All the hype was about them hitting homers, and we have the speed. But we showed pop over there, and I think it shocked them. WE hit good in their park every time we come there. But I just don’t think they expected us to come in there and win two. I just really don’t. I could tell the way Buck was making his moves, he wanted to win bad. He was taking his starters out in the fourth, both starters, and it was just matchup after matchup after that. That’s how you play the game. You’re trying to get that win at home. At least one. And if you don’t get that win, it’s pretty frustrating.”
