Work Ethic and Pie

No matter what happens with Felix PIe the rest of this season, I think we all need to give the kid a slap on the back for his momentus bomb that put the game away tonight. 

When Pie first came up to the bigs, the aspect of his game that impressed me the most was the his reputation for having a dogged work ethic - no, not his arm, his speed, defense or power....his work ethic.  He takes none of his skills for granted, and while he's had a rough start to the year, Felix Pie continues to put in the extra time and effort to improve his game and tonight he reaped the reward of his effort.

 

Let's all keep encouraging this young man because in an era when the most talented young athletes rest on their laurels, Felix Pie is a throw back to the old school - he respects the game as much as he loves to play it, and his hard work will pay off.
