Ventura's Sox staff: 'What's not to like?'

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Robin Ventura's staff might lead the Cactus League in team meetings. The good thing is most are brief and to the point, so there have been few complaints.
Players aren't griping about drills that take longer if they're not executed properly, either.
"If you drop the ball, we do it again,'' second baseman Gordon Beckham said. "Do it right and in a game it will go right. If you let stuff go, you'll make mistakes in a game. That's the point. We don't want to make mistakes in a game. And it showed - the first relay we had [right fielder Kosuke Fukudome to Beckham to catcher Tyler Flowers] we did it right. ''
Beckham gives two thumbs up to the new staff.
"What's not to like? They're good,'' he said. "They want to work and they really care about everybody getting a little better every day and that's important. They don't let you take a day off in terms of work.
"They're good, creating a good atmosphere.''
Ventura was looking for his first win when the Sox played the Brewers Wednesday. Jake Peavy started for the Sox against Marco Estrada.
