Mike Sweeney was asked yesterday in the clubhouse about his health. Here's some of what he said…
What do you have going on today?
"I swung a lousy bat today and it felt great."
When are you expected back?
"I don't know."
What's a lousy bat?
"There's no ball marks on it, so it's lousy. I was able to just take air swings today. Hopefully I can get back soon. I miss my teammates and I miss contributing and I miss being around the guys. I hope that today is just the beginning of the race and hopefully the race will be not a marathon. And I'll be back in the clubhouse soon."
Was it pain free?
"Pain free. Yes."
How many air swings did you do?
"I think about 30 or 40. I think my little two year-old took more swings than I did today."
