Pravda reports. Of course there are these quotes too... "Third baseman Jose Lopez sent a text message to his friend and former teammate Adrian Beltre the other day. It said, "Hey, give me the Gold Glove." Beltre returned the text: "You can have one of the two I have." Lopez laughed. Hey, maybe he can get his own Gold Glove. " ------ ""He is committed to being the best third baseman he can be," Mariners coach Steve Hecht said after a 30-minute session with Lopez prior to a Mariners game against the Royals. "Adrian would want you to hit bucket after bucket of balls at him in Spring Training, and Jose is doing the same thing. "It's great. It really is. I just keep hitting balls to him until he says 'stop.'" That has been about 100 balls on the days the Mariners take early batting practice. " I think it's fantastic that he seems to care about it so much.
