Bradley: The process is more of an appreciation to be able to meet different players and meet different coaches and learn as much as you can as fast as you can — and take it with you and make yourself a better ballplayer. You get to travel and go to so many different places and take it all in and enjoy it.
Once you go up there (majors) ... you’ve got the best foods, the best hotels. Knowing that’s what you’re working towards, it really makes you appreciate all of the things that you go through while you’re down here in the minor leagues.
Smitty: What area did you know you needed to work on the most when you were sent down here?
Bradley: It wasn’t a particular pitch or a particular zone or anything like that. Those are things that I know I can do. It was just getting timing back right and being the same ballplayer I am — not letting any of it get to me. It’s a confidence thing. That’s one thing you can’t let go.
