Mike Kelly: How confident are you that he (Fowler) can correct this?
Mo: First, if you were to ask Dex, he'd tell you it's tough when you're not playing. I think most athletes would tell you it's hard to fix if you're not in there, and I think that's the difficult part when you're managing a club, is trying to balance getting someone going and getting production. And for him it's...
A lot of people I think are challenging...cause I've had a lot of people come up to me over the last week or two...and they feel like it's an effort issue.
Mike Kelly (interrupts): Eh, I don't see that.
Mo: And that's what they want to see more of...more aggressiveness, and when you're thinking about contact, hard contact, when you're thinking about going after a ball, being more aggressive. And that's something I certainly want to challenge Dex on getting to, because I feel like he's someone that when we signed him he brought a lot of energy to our club, and right now you're just not seeing that same type and I hope we can get back to that.
Mike Kelly: But is there a difference between effort made and energy displayed?
Mo: I think you could argue that. Again, I feel like part of effort is perception, and what people see and how you're going about it. Dex has been someone that has the ability to maybe make it look a little easier than most, but I don't know if you're seeing that this year.
