"Colby taught me how to fish," Bartlett said. "We even went to the Everglades one day to fish for snook. I had never fished, but I'm kind of into it now."
The resumption of baseball means Bartlett has a new compadre for much of his day: second baseman Luis Castillo.
Bartlett is the 27-year-old Californian who tells you how great he feels. Castillo is the 31-year-old Dominican who shuffles around as if every step might be his last. Together, they did some remarkable things around second during the stretch drive and gained a grand appreciation for one another.
"Bartlett is a very good player," Castillo said. "We will have a full season now, and it will be good."
Bartlett said: "He'll be limping around, then he makes a dive and comes up with an unbelievable play. The thing I love about Luis is how much he wants to win."
Ron Gardenhire is another guy who wants to win -- especially in the first two months of this new season. And this time, Jason Bartlett positively will be at shortstop to assist in the effort.
