Norman (NY): Good morning Joe. I was wondering what your thoughts are on the fast starts for both JJ Hardy and Prince Fielder. Can Hardy keep up this MVP like pace and do you think that Prince Fielder can already be considered one of the elite power hitters in the game?
Joe Morgan: I think I said this on our first chat this year. When I went to Spring Training this year, the only game I saw was Milwaukee-Chicago Cubs as a practice game.

Joe Morgan: That was a good game. The Brewers are a fun club. ESPN Talent Handler: You want to head over to the other field? The Reds are playing a split-squad game against the Padres. Joe Morgan: No, I'm good. ESPN Talent Handler: ...Okay. Well, I'll drive you back to the hotel. Tomorrow, the Giants play the Braves, we have the Dodgers-Angels, and at night the DRays are playing the Tigers. Where do you want to go? Joe Morgan: I'm good, I think. ESPN Talent Handler: You...don't want to see any of the games? Joe Morgan: Nah. I saw this one. That seems like enough. ESPN Talent Handler: For the whole Spring? Just one game? Joe Morgan: It was a long game. ESPN Talent Handler: So...you're just going to head home? Joe Morgan: (inexplicably furious) I saw a game! Get off my back, Phillip! ESPN Talent Handler: Jennifer. Joe Morgan: Whatever.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
