I just don't see any of your examples as excessive "pumping". They're basically facts.
i can see the point that he is optimistic at times. i dont think its the majority of the time though. overall he's pretty genuine when he talks about his teams. just my opinion.
eta: for example he's been pretty frank in all interviews about the bullpen and C being the weak spots (or unproven spots) of the team.
Also, see my previous post about the 2007 team. He sure as shite didn't pump them up all.
This is a silly argument to begin with. I'm excited as shite for this team
