While randomly surfing through the baseball blog world I happened upon a article I find to be an atrocity. The article in question sought to find the "grittiest" players in baseball. Now as a twins fan I am witness to such an obscene amount of grit from Nick Punto that sometimes I have to go outside between innings and jump in the neighbors sandbox. However Mr. Grit himself is excluded from the list! Now if I have to put up with watching Nick Punto bat I at least want recognition about his grit! Heads should roll for this oversight. To accurately appreciate the end grit product Punto provides you must understand the process he goes through and the way he does it. To harness the grit you have to be obsessed with it.
Step 1 create the grit
step 2 revel in the grit
step 3 like a moth to a flame be drawn to the grit
