THAT’S ALL FOR US TONIGHT. REMEMBER YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND THE LATEST NEWS AND WEATHER ONLINE AT GOOD 4 UTAH DOT COM. WHAT A SHOW WE HAVE LIVENED UP FOR YOU TONIGHT. THE UTAH JAZZ WERE ON A ROLL. REAL SALT LAKE IS NOT ON A ROLL. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE STALIONS? AND WE WILL SIT DOWN WITH THE GOVERNOR. THAT’S RIGHT, THE GOVERNOR, GARY HERBERT JOINS US. JOIN ME AND OUR POLITICAL REPORTER TURNED SPORTS REPORTER. GLEN MILLS WILL COME OUT. IT IS “REAL SPORTS LIVE.” LET’S DO THIS. IT IS TIME FOR “REAL SPORTS LIVE.” TONIGHT ON “REAL SPORTS LIVE” THE JAZZ TRY TO MAKE IT EIGHT STRAIGHT AS THEY BATTLE THE LAKERS IN L.A. DESPITE SOME KEY INJURIES, IS THIS TEAM READY TO MAKE A DEEP PLAYOFF RUN? REY’ALL SALT LAKE — REAL SALT LAKE CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE. AND HOW CAN RSO TURN THEIR SEASON AROUND? THE SALT LAKE STALIONS’ SEASON CAME TO AN ABRUPT END. CAN MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL SURVIVE IN THIS COUNTRY? AND A BASEBALL STAR IS SHINING BRIGHT. ALL THAT AND THE GOVERNOR, GARY HERBERT, JOINS US TO TALK IT STARTS RIGHT NOW. WELL, HEY THERE, EVERYBODY. WELCOME TO “REAL SPORTS LIVE.” I AM DANA GREEN. AND DO NOT ADJUST YOUR TV. THIS IS SENIOR POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT GLEN MILLS FILLING IN FOR WESLEY ROUGH. GLEN, THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN A DREAM OF YOURS, RIGHT? YOU ARE RIGHT, AND I DON’T GOOD MORNING, UTAH, GOOD THINGS, UTAH, THE 4:00, 5:00, 6:00, 9:00, 10:00, WEEKDAY, WEEK — WEEKEND. AND NEVER DID THIS ONE? AND YOU FORGOT THE ONE I I DID THIS MORNING UTAH 4 POLITICS. WHAT I AM SAYING IS I AM HITTING FOR THE CYCLE. THIS IS REALLY EXCITING. IT IS GREAT OF A POLITICAL REPORTER OF — AS GREAT OF A HEADING TO THEIR 8th STRAIGHT WIN. ALL THEY HAD TO DO WAS BEAT THE LAKERS. THE LOWLY LAKERS. IT WAS TOO TOUGH OF A TASK. THE JAZZ WERE DUE FOR A LET DOWN. RUDY GO BEAR HAD HAD HIS 300th DUNK. JAZZ ARE UP FIVE AT THE BREAK. THE LAKERS ARE WITHOUT LEBRON AND WITHOUT RONDO, THEY GOT A BIG GAME FROM CALDWELL-POPE WHO LOOKED LIKE LEBRON. HE HAD 32 POINTS. McGEE EXPLODED FOR 22. JAZZ LOSE IT 113-RUN 09. 113-109. WITH THE JAZZ LOSS AND PORTLAND’S WIN OVER DENVER, THEY ARE LOCKED IN THE FIVE SEED. THEY WILL LIKELY PLAY AT PORTLAND IN THE PLAYOFFS. ARE YOU OKAY FOR THAT? THEY WANT TO JUMP INTO THE FOUR SEED. IF IT COMES TO GAME SEVEN YOU WANT TO PLAY IN SALT LAKE CITY AND NOT PORTLAND. IF YOU REALLY LOOKED AT IT AND THE CLIPPERS WILL BE MOTIVATED. THE PORT — PORTLAND TRAIL — TRAILBLAZERS WERE PACKING IT UP EARLY. IT WAS UNLIKELY THEY WOULD MAKE THAT JUMP. THEIR HOPE IS PORTLAND WOULD HAVE LOST TONIGHT. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS WIN OUT. YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED. PORTLAND IS GOING UP AGAINST DENVER. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH DENVER? DENVER RESTED THREE STARTERS. MILL SAP WAS OUT AND MURRAY WAS OUT. I THINK THE BIG TAKE AWAY IS GRAYSON AND ALLEN. THE JAZZ WERE WITHOUT FAVORS AND WITHOUT RUBIO AND WITHOUT KORVER AND WITHOUT MEADOW AND EXOM AND THEY WERE STILL ON A SEVEN-DAY WINNING STREEK. I THINK THAT EVENTUALLY CAUGHT UP WITH THEM THE WAY THE LAKERS ARE A PRETTY GOOD TEAM AT HOME. THEY JUST BEAT — BELIEVE HE MAY BE KEY IN THE PLAYOFFS. THAT’S HUGE COME TOGETHER PLAYOFFS. YOU JUST SAW THEM GO COLD, ALMOST ICE COLD. IT CAUGHT UP TO THEM. LOOK AT THE SEASON THOUGH. THEY SPLIT TWO GAMES APIECE. WITH THE BLAZERS. WITH THE BLAZERS. THE THING THAT TROUBLES ME ARE THE BLAZERS HAVE WON THE LAST TWO. THE JAZZ WON THE FIRST TWO. THAT’S BEFORE THEY GOT CANTOR. THEY PICK AND ROLL IT EVERY TIME. AND YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THE PORTLAND KEEPS WINNING. THAT’S INCREDIBLE. AND CJ MCCOLLUM WHO HAS BEEN OUT FOR AT LEAST TWO OR THREE WEEKS CAME BACK AND HAD A DECENT GAME. HE IS ONLY GETTING BETTER. AND THE JAZZ WHAT CONCERNS ME IS THE GAMES THEY ARE GIVING UP TO THE GUARDS. GUYS LIKE BOOKER AND CALDWELL-POPE. THEY ARE GIVING UP HUGE GAMES. WALKER HAD LIKE 47. THEY WERE IN THE SAME SPOT LAST YEAR, IN THE FIVE SEED AND ENDED UP FINDING A WAY TO WIN AND THEY CAN DO IT AGAIN. THEY WILL BE FAVORED AGAINST THE BLAZERS. REAL SALT LAKE’S EARLY SEASON ISN’T QUITE DISASTROUS YET, BUT LET’S BE REAL SHALL WE? RSO DROPPED ITS FOURTH STRAIGHT GAME LAST NIGHT LOSING IT 1-0 SEATTLE. THE ONLY GOAL OF THE GAME CAME IN THE 18th MINUTE WHEN THEY VOLLEYED HOME THIS PASS FROM CHRISTIAN ROLAND. IT IS A SPECTACULAR SHOT. FALLING DOWN. BEAUTIFUL SHOT. IT WAS GOOD TO SEE SAM JOHNSON PUT A COUPLE OF SHOTS ON GOAL FOR REAL. THE BEST CHANCE CAME IN THE 73rd MINUTE WHEN THE SHOT HIT THE POST. IT WAS THAT CLOSE. RSO IS NOW 1-4-1 TO START THE SEASON. ON THE ROAD. I THINK THE DEFENSE IS PLAYING WELL AND THEY ARE NOT GENERATING ENOUGH CHANCES. THE CHANCES THEY ARE GENERATING THEY ARE NOT FINISHING. HE WAS ON RED CARD SUSPENSION. IF WE ARE LOOKING FOR BABY STEPS HOW ABOUT THEY FINISHED WITH 11 GUYS. I AM NO EXPERT, BUT WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING 11 GUYS AGAINST 10 IT IS PROBABLY NOT GOING TO GO VERY WELL. THIS REMINDS ME OF WHAT WE WERE SAYING ABOUT THE JAZZ EARLIER IN THE YEAR. DESERVE MORE THAN WE REALLY GOT. NO. THEY ARE NOT GETTING THE RESULTS. FOUR STRAIGHT LOSSES. THAT’S THE FIRST TIME THEY HAPPENED IN TWO YEARS. HE DOESN’T BELIEVE IN — NO PROFESSIONAL COACH BELIEVES IN MORAL VICTORIES. SEATTLE IS UNDEFEATED. THEY ARE PLAYING GREAT TEAMS ON THE ROAD AND BEING COMPETITIVE. FORGET MIKE PET KEY. HE SAID SOMEBODY STEP UP AND TAKE LEADERSHIP AND GO OUT AND GET MAD. RALLY THE TEAM AND LET’S GET OUT AND SCORE SOME POINTS AND WIN SOME GAMES. THAT CAN HAPPEN AGAINST ORLANDO CITY. THEY WILL BE PRIME FOR A WIN. THEY ARE AT HOME. JUSTIN GLAD, ANOTHER ONE OF THE KEY DEFENDERS AND HE IS GETTING CLOSE TO COMING BACK. SIX GAMES IN AND THE SEASON GOES UNTIL OCTOBER. LET’S — I SEE A SWINE COMING UP THIS WEEK — I SEE A WIN LIKE A BAD HAND IN POKER. THE LEAGUE OWNER ANNOUNCED ON TUESDAY THAT THE LEAGUE WAS SUSPENDING OPERATIONS EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY WITH JUST TWO WEEKS LEFT IN THE REGULAR SEASON. IT WAS A $250 MILLION INVESTMENT AND THEY REPORTEDLY LOST SOME 70 MILLION ALREADY AND WITHOUT A PARTNERSHIP WITH THE NFL HE SAYS, WELL, WE’RE DONE. THE STALIONS WHO WERE STILL ALIVE WITH THEIR FIRST AND ONLY SEASON WITH THAT 3-5 RECORD, I FEEL BAD FOR THE ADMINISTRATORS WHO WERE PROMISED A THREE-YEAR COMMITMENT, BUT IS THE AAF FOLDING SURPRISE YOU? YES AND NO, AND HERE IS WHY I SAY THAT. THREE YEARS, I NEVER THOUGHT THEY WOULD LAST THREE YEARS. THEY HAD ADD GOOD TV DEAL. AND WE HEARD A LOT ABOUT THAT, IT IS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT AND WE HAVE THE TV DEAL AND THE FINANCIAL BACKING. THESE LEAGUES IF YOU LOOK AT THEM, THEY ARE NOT PANNING OUT, AND THEY ARE NOT LASTING. I THOUGHT IT WOULD AT LEAST LAST ONE SEASON. ARE YOU KIDDING ME 1234 YOU KIND OF THING. HE WASN’T IN FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PLAYERS. HE WANTED TO MAKE MONEY. WHEN HE SAW WHERE IT WAS GOING PROMISED THE THREE-YEAR COMMITMENTS WHO MAY HAVE FORE GONE OTHER JOBS TO TAKE A JOB WITH THE STALIONS THINKING IT WOULD BE AROUND AT LEAST A FEW YEARS. THE KEY WAS NOT GETTING THE PARTNERSHIP WITH THE NFL. WERE YOU INTERESTED IN GOING OUT THERE AND SEEING THESE GUYS THAT YOU MAYBE HEARD A COUPLE OF THEM AND MAYBE — THE LOCAL CONNECTION WAS COOL, BUT JOHNNY MANZIEL, THOSE ARE THE TOP NAMES IN THE LEAGUE AND DO WE BUY TICKETS TO SEE THEM? AND IN SALT LAKE CITY AS AWESOME AS IT WAS THAT WE HAD THIS TEAM HERE IN OUR OWN BACKYARD, WE ARE PLAYING IN FEBRUARY. IT IS COLD, AND IT IS SNOWING. THIS IS NOT NOVEMBER SNOW. IT IS FEBRUARY SNOW. YOU’RE RIGHT. THOSE ARE ALL HAS BEENS FROM THE NFL. HS — IT IS HARD TO LOCK IN ON THAT AND BUILD EXCITEMENT. EITHER THESE ARE HAS BEENS AND UP AND COMINGS GOING THROUGH IT, BUT WITHOUT THE PARTNERSHIP IT WOULDN’T WORK. I THINK WE WERE ALL EITHER LIED TO OR THEY HAD NO IDEA WHAT THEY WERE DOING. THEY NEED AN INVESTMENT OF $250 MILLION? THAT WAS THE FIRST SIGN OF TROUBLE AND YOU KNEW IT WAS GOING DOWNHILL. SOME OF THE COACHES WERE BIGGER NAMES. THAT’S A PROBLEM. STEVE SPURRIR. WHEN THE COACH RTZ BIG HEADLINE GUYS. THAT’S NOT GOING DRAW A LOT OF PEOPLE. DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE MEMPHIS TEAM 1234 THEY CAME BACK AFTER LEARNING THE LEAGUE WAS FOLDED AND THEIR STUFF WAS IN THE HOTEL LOBBY SAYING YOU’RE DONE. THAT’S NO WAY TO TREAT THE PLAYERS WHO HAVE SACRIFICED. AND GIANI PAUL WHO STARTED A GO FUND ME BECAUSE HE BROKE THE UTES HELD A SCRIM — SCRIMMAGE THIS LAST WEEK. NO TACKLING IN THE SCRIMMAGE. HUNTLEY HAS LOOKED GOOD AT QUARTERBACK. HE IS THE UNQUESTIONED STARTER. THIS WAS OUR FIRST REAL LOOK AT TEXAS TRANSFER RISING IN AN ACTION — IN ACTION AND IN SCRIMMAGE AND HE WAS IMPRESSIVE. ARE THINGS RISING ON THE HILL? DANA, YOUR IMPRESSIONS ON SPRING BALL SO FAR? A LOT OF EXPECTATIONS COMING INTO THE UTES SEASON. I DON’T DO IMPRESSIONS FIRST OF ALL. IT IS TOUGH TO TELL HOW THE SCRIMMAGES ARE GOING WHEN THEY ARE NOT TACKLING THE FIRST TEAM. I REMEMBER TALKING TO DEVONTE HENRY-COLE WHO IS VYING FOR THE BACK UP RUNNING BACK JOB. THEY HAVE T.J. GREEN AND — BRUNFELD. HE SAID I THOUGHT I SCORED A TOUCHDOWN, BUT I GUESS HE TOUCHED MY HELMET. WHEN YOU BRING IN A NEW OC. I THINK WITH THE FAMILIARITY — AND HE WAS SUCCESSFUL. OBVIOUSLY THEY WENT DOWN, BUT THE TEAM CAME OUT AFTER THOSE TWO PLAYERS WENT DOWN AND WENT OUT AND WON THE SOUTH AND PLAYED FOR A TITLE. THIS IS AN EXCITING YEAR FOR THE UTES COMING BACK. MAYBE THE MOST EXCITING SINCE THE SUGAR BOWL. DO YOU THINK? IF THEY — IF THEY ARE EVER GONNA WIN A PAC-12 CHAMPIONSHIP WITH WASHINGTON LOSING THEIR QUARTERBACK AND OREGON HAS BEEN GOOD, BUT U USC AND UCLA IS STILL DOWN. IF THEY DON’T WIN A PAC-12 CHAMPIONSHIP THIS YEAR I DON’T KNOW IF THEY EVER WILL. IT IS ALL LINED UP FOR THEM THIS YEAR. IT IS SCARY TO LOOK AT THAT FIRST GAME ON THE SCHEDULE. WHO IS COUNTING, RIGHT? EXACTLY. THAT GAME LAST YEAR WAS INCREDIBLE. THE WAY THEY FELL BEHIND 20-0 AND THEN CAME BACK. ZACH WILSON, VERY MOTIVATED. BYU IS GOING TO BE PRETTY GOOD FIGHTING. IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT THE SPRING GAME WILL BE LIKE. NO TACKLING FOR THE FIRST TEAM EVEN IN THE SPRING GAME, BUT MAYBE MORE SECOND AND THIRD TEAMERS. UH — A LOT OF MORE EXCITEMENT ON THE HILL. WE HAVE TO TAKE A TIME-OUT ON “REAL SPORTS LIVE.” WE WILL STEP INTO MY WORLD. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT STATE OF SPORTS HERE IN THE BEE HIV WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW. WE UPGRADED OUR STUDIO. WE ARE COMING TO YOU FROM THE GOVERNOR’S MANSION. A NICE CHANGE OF PACE. USUALLY WE ARE TALKING ABOUT VETOES AND CONTROVERSIAL BILLS AND WE ARE TALKING SPORTS TONIGHT. AND WE ARE UP GRADING THE TENANTS IN THE MANSION. THE STATE OF SPORTS AWARDS. THAT’S ALWAYS A GREAT EVENT. TELL US ABOUT THIS YEAR’S EVENTS AND WHO IS ON TAP. THE UH — AWARD IS GIVEN TO AGASSI AND JACK NICKLAUS AND VERNE LAW. IT WILL BE A GREAT EVENT FOR PEOPLE TO CELEBRATE UTAH AS THE STATE OF SPORTS. BY GOLLY, WE REALLY ARE THE STATE OF SPORTS. TALK MORE ABOUT THAT. HOW IMPORTANT IS STOUTER — SPORT TO OUR WAY OF LIFE HERE IN THE STATE OF UTAH? I. WE ALWAYS HAD AN OUTDOOR RECREATION WAY OF LIFE. WE APPRECIATE OUTDOORS AND RECREATION IN ALL ITS FORMS. BECAUSE WE HAD A HEALTHY ECONOMY, WE ACTUALLY HAVE AN INCREASE IN LEISURE TIME WHETHER IT IS CAMPING OR FISHING OR HIKING OR GOING TO SPORTING EVENTS LIKE THE JAZZ ORCALY JET EVENTS — OR COLLEGIATE EVENTS. MORE PEOPLE ARE INVOLVED THAN EVER IN HISTORY. SO MUCH IS INVOLVED IN UTAH SPORTS. THE THING THAT UTAH IS MOST ASSOCIATED WITH IS THE OLYMPICS. THERE IS SO MUCH EXCITEMENT ON CAN YOU BREAK THE NEWS? I CAN TELL YOU THE 2002 WINTER OLYMPICS COULDN’T HAVE GONE ANY BETTER. THEY HAVE BEEN RECOGNIZED AS THE BEST WINTER OLYMPICS IN OLYMPIC HISTORY. WE HOSTED THE WORLD SO IT WAS GOOD FOR THE OWE LIMB PEA YENS. IT WAS — UTAH IS KIND OF COMING OUT PARTY. WE HOSTED THE WORLD AND THEY GOT TO DISCOVER UTAH UNDER FRESH CON DINGS — CONDITIONS AND FIND OUT WE ARE MORE SAW — SOPHISTICATED. WE ARE FRIENDLY AND BILINGUAL. WE CAME THROUGH WITH A SUCCESSFUL OLYMPICS. BECAUSE OF THAT IT WAS NOT A HARD SELL TO THE COMMITTEE TO ARE THINKING. IT COSTS MONEY AND TO HAVE CONVENIENCE LIKE WE HAVE OFF THE CORRIDOR AND NESTLED IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS YOU CAN GET TO THE EVENTS COMFORTABLY IN AN HOUR OR LESS. WE HAVE HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS. IT IS ALL OF THE THINGS THAT COME WITH THE WINTER OLYMPICS WE HAVE A LEGACY FROM 2002. WE JUST NEED A LITTLE SPRUCING UP AND WE ARE READY TO GO FROM 2030. WE ARE KEEPING AN EYE ON THAT. LET’S TALK ABOUT THE JAZZ. THE TALK OF THE TOWN AND LOOKING FOR A THIRD STRAIGHT PLAYOFF RUN. WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR THE STATE OF UTAH WHEN THE JAZZ IS SO SUCCESSFUL GETTING INTO THE PLAYOFFS AND MAKING RUNS TO THE NBA FINALS. THE JAZZ ARE PROBABLY THE BIGGEST BRAND WE HAVE SPORTS WISE IN OUR STATE. I WAS IN CHINA, HALFWAY AROUND THE WORLD, AND THE THING THEY ASK, HOW ARE THE JAZZ DOING? IN FACT, WE GAVE AS A GIFT IN EXCHANGE, WE GAVE THEM AUTOGRAPHED BASKETBALL SIGNED BY THE JAZZ. THEY ASKED HOW COME HE RETIRED AND SO THEY ARE ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT THE JAZZ I THOUGHT WAS REMARKABLE. THE JAZZ BRAND HAS PUT UTAH ON THE MAP IN MANY WAYS. THIS BASKETBALL TEAM, MY GOSH, TALK ABOUT ENTERTAINING WITH DONOVAN MITCHELL AND THE TEAM HOW THEY GO THIS WHERE. LAST YEAR WAS FUN AND THIS YEAR IS FUNNER. DO YOU GET A CHANCE TO WATCH THE GAMES AND WHEN YOU DO, ARE YOU JUST LIKE US SCREAMING AT THE TV AND YELLING AT THE REFS? DO YOU GET RILED UP? DO YOU HAVE TO KEEP THAT POSITION? I SAW THE GAME LAST NIGHT AND HAD TO CALL AN OFFENSIVE FOUL. HE IS PUSHED IN THE BACK AND CHANCE. JUST SO MANY THINGS IN MY LIFE AND MY SCHEDULE THAT I AM A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED ON MY RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES. LET’S TALK COLLEGE SPORTS. A LOT OF GREAT UNIVERSITIES TO CHEER FOR HERE IN THE STATE OF UTAH. YOU WENT TO BRIGHAM YOUNG. WHO DO YOU CHEER FOR WHEN IT COMES TO THE BIG RIVALRY? THAT’S A TOUGH QUESTION. I HAVE ALLEGIANCES TO ALL OF THE UNIVERSITIES AND THEY ARE ALL DOING GOOD THINGS. UTAH STATE IS DOING GREAT AND WEEBER STATE AND DIXIE STATE, THEY ARE ALL DOING GOOD THINGS. I HAVE SONS THAT PLAYED AT UNIVERSITY OF UTAH AND SONS THAT PLAYED AT BYU. I AM VERY ACUMENTICAL. ANY TEAM FROM UTAH I CHEER FOR. I HAVE TO REMAIN MORE NEUTRAL IF STATE FINALS. DO YOU HAVE ONE OF THOSE HALF RED, HALF BLUE HATS? I WANTED TO WEAR ONE AND MY WIFE SAID I LOOKED DORKY. I DECIDED NOT TO DO THAT. AND YOU PLAYED TENNIS AGAINST SOME OF THE GREATS, ANDRE AGASSI. YES JIM CUR REI ER AND JOHN McINROW. ONE OF THE FATHERS AND FOUNDERS OF THE ATP TOUR I PLAYED AGAINST HIM. I BEAT HIM AND THE NEXT YEAR HE CLEANED MY CLOCK. I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK TO A LOT OF PEOPLE. IT IS A GOOD RECREATIONAL AND CASUAL SPORT. YOU GET THE HEART PUMPING AND YOU SWEAT A LITTLE BIT. I ENJOY PLAYING TENNIS BECAUSE I CAN GET A WORKOUT IN AN HOUR AND A HALF AND IT KEEPS MY HAND-EYE COORDINATION GOING. FOR LEISURE TIME I PLAY A LITTLE GOLF. I CAN SAY I HAVE BEEN ON THE HARDWOOD WITH THE GOVERNOR LOT FASTER OR MAYBE I AM GETTING SLOWER. SPORTS ARE THERE. THERE IS SOMETHING THERE FOR EVERYBODY TO EITHER PARTICIPATE IN OR OBSERVE. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. THANK YOU. WE’LL SEE YOU AT THE STATE SPORT AWARDS. WE WILL BE OUT THERE. WE WILL GO BACK TO THE STUDIO FOR THE NEXT SEGMENT YOU’RE WASP — WATCHING ABC SEASON. FORMER BINGHAM HIGH AND BYU STAR IS THRILLED TO BE PLAYING IN HIS HOME STATE. HE IS THE FIRST UTAH HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL PLAYER TO COME UP THROUGH THE ANGELS ORGANIZATION TO MAKE IT TO THE SALT LAKE BEES. I AM TRULY EXCITED TO BE FORGETTING ME HERE. HE WASN’T CONCERNED WITH HOW LONG IT WOULD TAKE TO GET TO THE TRIPLE-A LEVEL, BUT NOW THAT HE IS HERE HE HAS HIS SIGHTS SET ON THE MAJORS. I DIDN’T WORRY ABOUT TIME. I WAS MORE WORKING ON THE PROCESS OF PLAYING AND TRYING TO BECOME BETTER. I HAD A LOT OF WORK TO DO WHEN I WAS DRAFTED. I WAS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING A FINISHED PRODUCT. HOW GOOD OF A DEFENSIVE CENTER FIELDER HE CAN BE. HE IS A GOOD PLAYER, A SOLID CENTER FIELDER. HE JUST HAS TO CONTINUE TO PROGRESS AND HOPEFULLY GET HIM TO THE BIG LEAGUES SOON. HE ATTENDED PLENTY OF B’S IT IS AWESOME I CAME OUT OF BINGHAM HIGH SCHOOL AND ABLE TO PLAY IN SALT LAKE. BASEBALL IS NOT AS BIG HERE IN UTAH. IT IS COOL TO BE ABLE TO COME OUT OF THE SMALLER POOL OF PLAYERS. THE ONLY THING GOING AGAINST LUND, THE ANGELS CENTER FIELDER IS A GUY NAMED MIKE TROUT. MAYBE HE CAN FIND ANOTHER OUTFIELD POSITION. TROUT CAME THROUGH THE TEAM AS WELL. GRAYSON ALLEN’S CAREER WEEK IS KICKED OFTEN — KICKED OFF BY NOT ONE, BUT TWO WATER BOTTLE SHOWERS. I I HAVEN’T GOT ANY. MAYBE AFTER THE SHOW. IT KICKS OFF THIS WEEK’S
