"All these guys here are good guys," said Freddy Galvis, who has played with second baseman Cesar Hernandez since they were kids in Venezuela. "We stick together. We have the same goal. We try to stay on the same page. We try to have fun, play hard and work hard and we go from there. I think the communication and friendship we have in the clubhouse is much better than last year."
"I know I can hit the ball in the gaps but most of the time I was playing around with my swing, trying to do different stuff, trying to hit the ball in one direction, sometimes trying to go to left field, trying to put the ball in play or trying to stay on the ground," Galvis said. "But I know I can hit the ball to the gaps and if you hit it good, next thing you now it's going to be a homer. It just took 20 good swings, and the ball went out of the park. But I feel like I have to focus on trying to hit the ball good and whatever happens, happens."
