Pitchers making changes for the better
We all know the baseball saying, "If you are not getting better, you are getting worse." That anti-complacency mantra is repeated religiously every spring, and I've always been impressed that some of the best in the business are committed to taking their game up a notch. True, if you have the comfort of a long-term deal, you can go into camp with a certain amount of complacency. But those who work on improving some aspect of their game reveal themselves not only as great players, but as great leaders who may be around for a long time.San Francisco ace Tim Lincecum is spectacular yet not satisfied. During spring training, Lincecum expressed how he wanted to get a different tilt on his breaking pitches. Two Cy Young awards aren't enough. He probably uses those trophies to hold up his Xbox 360 or PS3 (not sure what he plays).
