"Yeah, I honestly didn't know it was five weeks, if that answers your question," said Hoby Milner, pitcher on Thursday, Feb. 23. "No. I'm more focused on when I'm getting off the mound next, so I'm worried about what I'm doing today, getting myself ready for -- I throw live (Friday), so I'm just getting ready for that."
"I mean, obviously, you know when that date is," said Garrett Mitchell, outfielder. "You know who you're playing, but obviously, the focus is just to be right here and be where our feet are. We're all coming off of a long offseason, so getting back out there, just getting ourselves comfortable to get prepared for the first games."
