Last year you lost a lot of weight before the season and this year you purposely gained. What's up?
I was in better (looking) shape last year, but I felt small and at the end of the season it wore on me. Playing-wise, I feel better.
What's the last movie you saw?
Mr. 3000. If you would have asked me the last movie before that, it was Bad Santa. I hardly get to movies.
Was it, well, a hit?
Xavier Lee pronounces it differently but spells it the same, so we've got to ask, what's it like having someone on the team with the same unusual first name?
It's funny. I'm like, "What's up X.' He'll say, "Not much X.' I call him Little X.
