Mike Rizzo made an appearance on MLB Network Radio on Thursday and discussed, among other things, the photo of Adam LaRoche with a large mountain lion on his back which made the rounds earlier in the week:
"It was an impressive mountain lion. I like to think he shot the mountain lion because the mountain lion was going to attack him."
On the possibility of joining LaRoche on a future hunting expedition:
"I don't think so."
Somewhat less importantly, Rizzo also touched on progress on extensions for Jordan Zimmermann and Ian Desmond:
"We have had discussions with both of those guys, I'll keep the results and discussions to myself...But these are guys that are extremely talented players, that are homegrown by us, guys we feel are part of the furniture here."
