On our trip to Houston, Matt and I decided to set some interview goals. One of Matt's main targets was Darwin Barney, second baseman for the Chicago Cubs. Barney had a surprisingly good season for the Cubs (finishing 7th in the NL Rookie of the Year vote) and quickly became a favorite among Cubs fans.
Matt took charge by stopping Barney as he jogged to the dugout. Clearly Barney was not going to stop, but Matt worked it well. Even better, Barney didn't just give pat answers. You can see he is putting thought behind his words.
Kudos to Matt for hitting his target and even more for the way he handled it.
