An interview with Mike Scioscia and Torii Hunter
Angels talk about trailing Boston in Division Series
What's your lineup?MANAGER SCIOSCIA: We'll have all we know is we'll have Juan Rivera is going to be in right field, Jeff Mathis catching, so it's Chone Figgins, Garret Anderson, Mark Teixeira, Vlad, Torii, Rivera, Kendrick, Mathis, Aybar, Santana. It was posted down there. But I'll bring it to you every day from now on. (Chuckles.) Torii, you've been around a large number of playoff teams in your years with the Twins. How does this team compare with staying loose or not being loose in the middle of a playoff when things don't go your way? TORII HUNTER: These guys pretty much stay loose. We have a lot of veteran guys on the team and it seems we have some guys with two, three plus years that have been there before and just watching the guys. Even though we were down, you know, 4 1, you still look at guys are still trying to root each other on and get it going. So in the past we were more of a younger team, in Minnesota, and we were up there battling and fighting, you know, but here guys are relaxed because they know baseball. Baseball is a funny game, it's a crazy game, you know, you can go up -- you can win the first game and end up losing a couple more so we're going to be patient and wait for your turn, which is today.
