close your eyes

Sports Illustrated's Joe Posnanski has a great piece up today about Matt Cain's no nonsense approach to executing his pitches.

And as he talked, I was reminded of my favorite Matt Cain answer of the postseason. It was on Wednesday, and the talk was about nerves, and the question was this: "How do you sleep the night before a start in the World Series?"

And Matt Cain's answer was this: "Close your eyes."

Love. It.
