Don't know about you, but we've been waiting all winter to fill in the blank in this sentence: "Cristian Guzman will be better in 2006 because of ______________." Guzman showed up camp yesterday and filled in the blank: laser eye surgery. And so, the sentence reads like this: "Cristian Guzman will be better in 2006 because of laser eye surgery". Now if only we knew what this 'little surprise' was that he mentioned.
"The people are going to like the new Guzie...I've got a little surprise for them" (Cristian Guzman, via Washington Post, 2/22/2006)
"Last year is the past...This is 2006. Everything is new. Everybody is going to know the Guzman of a couple of years ago. That's all I have on my mind. The fans are going to enjoy the new Guzie." (Cristian Guzman, via Nationals dot com, 2/21/2006)
"When you're struggling the whole year like that, you have to be strong to be happy every day...When you come to feel you're doing nothing for your teammates, you feel a little bit down...Now it's the first day I do BP here...I see the ball real good. ... It doesn't matter what people say. They're going to enjoy the new Guzie this year. I've got a little surprise for them." (Cristian Guzman, via AP/Yahoo Sports, 2/21/2006)
"We're not going to sit back...and watch Cristian Guzman have another year like he did last year." (Jim Bowden, via Washington Post, 2/22/2006)
