So…earlier then?

February 24, 2012

TOM GAGE
Brandon? Would you come here for a moment, please?

BRANDON INGE
I’m sorry. I was late. I was having lunch.

GAGE
I need to talk about your camp arrival time.

INGE
Really? I showed up when I was supposed to. See, I checked in yesterday, February 23.

GAGE
Well, ok, February 23 is minimum, ok?

INGE
Ok.

GAGE
Now, it’s up to you whether or not you want to just do the bare minimum. Well, like Jackson, for example, he’s been in camp for weeks. And has a terrific smile.

INGE
Ok. Ok, you want me to be earlier?

GAGE
Look. Brandon.

INGE
Yeah.

GAGE
People can get a second baseman anywhere. They come to you for the fun and the attitude. That’s what the early arrival is about, it’s about the attitude.

INGE
Ok. So, earlier then?

GAGE
Look, we want you to help the team, ok? If you think the bare minimum is enough, then ok. But some people choose to arrive early and we encourage that, ok? You do want to help the team, don’t you?

INGE
Yeah. Yeah.

GAGE
Great. Great. That’s all I ask.

INGE
Ok.

 

**A special hat tip to @johnjparent on this one!

    The Tom Gage pic looks like Bob Roll of the old Versus Tour de France coverage… which makes this all the more hilarious.

    Office Space references never get old. Thanks for posting this.
