Humber Takes Advise

Marty Noble at, writes about Philip Humber and theadvise he recieved from Tom Glavine:

Glavine -- and everyone else -- had seen Humber "really pressing and trying to impress the coaches." Those were Humber's words as he paraphrased Glavine. "You're trying to make the team out of Spring Training. And honestly, what are your chances of making the team out of the spring?"

"I said, 'Well, I don't know,'" Humber said.

"Well, they're pretty long odds," Glavine said. "But you're a young guy, and I'll bet a paycheck you're going to help us win this year."

And with that piece of reality coming from "a guy who pays attention," Humber changed his outlook.

"It cleared my mind," he said.
