The “It Is About The Money, Stupid” blog has an interesting interview with Darrell Rasner. He talks about his career, the guys on the team, Joe Girardi and some other topics.
Ras is one of those guys everybody around the team roots for. He’s been released, badly injured, DFA’d, you name it. But he always bounces back and puts himself in a position to help the team.
The writers spend a lot of time in the clubhouse. It opens to us 3.5 hours before the game and we’re in there up to 45 minutes or an hour afterward. Add in spring training and it’s a significant amount of time over eight months. You get a pretty good sense of the personalities.
Darrell always has something friendly to say and he never takes the question about his performance personally. He understands we have a job, just like he does.
Good job by IIATMS (seriously, you need another name for that blog) to open a little window on Rasner. It’s good to see a fan blog work hard to do something positive.
