GVB-- Jose you won the third base job in spring training and you've gotten off to a pretty good start at the plate. You have to feel good about that?

JB-- Yeah, I feel good so far. I think I've been consistent in my approach and trying to swing at pitches that are in the zone and just put the ball in play, hard, consistently and its worked out so far.
