Quote: Victorino wants to LOSE the Right Way

“We just need to play with some intensity… It’s not about losing and winning.  It’s about losing the right way and conducting ourselves the right way.  Basically, that was the whole brunt of the conversation, nothing more than that.  There was no reaming, no yelling at anybody, just understanding to go up there and if we’re gonna lose, to lose the right way.”

~ Shane Victorino, in the New York Post, regarding Charlie Manuel’s pre-game message.

…i love it… i absolutely love it…

…manuel held a meeting with the team on Wednesday: Phillies lose… the next night, the players held a players-only meetings: Phillies lose… in victorino’s quote, he isn’t talking about being the team to beat, being the best, etc., instead he’s talking about LOSING… priceless
