|Paul Goldschmidt 'prepared' to handle success |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/11/14) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said he isn't concerned about first baseman Paul Goldschmidt getting complacent following a breakout season in 2013, according to MLB.com.
"He's prepared and he's stayed extremely humble," Gibson said. "I don't think anything is going to go to anybody's head. As good as you think Goldy was, in his mind he thinks he could be so much better and he thinks his teammates could be so much better and we agree."
|Paul Goldschmidt explains high RBI total |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(11/14/13) Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who hit .338 with runners in scoring position en route to an NL-leading 125 RBI in 2013, told the Arizona Republic he made a conscious effort not to put extra pressure on himself in those situations.
"When there were guys on base, I almost tried to just pretend there was nobody on," he said. "Or if it was late in the game, I'd try to take the same approach as if it's the first inning so I didn't have too much adrenaline in the box."
Goldschmidt also led the NL in home runs (36), slugging percentage (.551) and OPS (.952).
