Matt: Last season, you really broke through offensively at the MLB level as you were always expected to. One concern was your high strikeout rate (32.5%), is this something you will be looking to improve on in 2008? Is there anything you have done in the offseason to try and work on this?
[b]B.J./b] I mean you definitely want to improve on it. I definitely don’t want to strike out that many times. You know I think, if I have the same exact season that I had last year and the strikeouts are still there, then I think its just something that I am gonna have to work with. But you definitely want to improve on it, and I just gotta swing the bat a little bit more this year, and we will see where that takes me.
