"Spring Training or regular season, you'll take winning over losing every time, no matter where you're doing it," rookie manager Mike Matheny said on Saturday. "I think [winning] can become a habit.
"We're competing. In game situations, you need to execute. And our guys are executing on a pretty consistent basis. My goal is to get the guys ready. And I think most of the guys are ready. We've got quite a few guys who are pretty ready.
"You have to work without overworking. It's hard to prepare for that long season ahead. You've just got to get out there and get the work done. And we've got the work done."
