“Our team has worked hard to put ourselves in the position we’re in today. Overcoming a tough division, along with twenty years of Pirates’ history, to secure a winning season and capture the playoff berth is a tremendous accomplishment for our entire organization. We’re pleased, but we’re not satisfied. We know that this was only one step in our journey. It’s the next steps – during the playoffs and beyond – that will truly define us. I gifted each of my teammates a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label to remind them it’s not over yet, we need to Keep Walking.”
On the latest Podcast Extra, Walker told Cocktails that his end-of-season drink – whenever that finally happens – will be a glass of Johnnie Walker. We suppose that if it’s good enough for him, it’s good enough for his teammates.
Neil Walker has been on a tear since handing out the presents.
Smart man. Keep up the great work, Mayor.
