Minor League Chess

From an interview with Grant Johnson, pitcher for the Daytona Cubs -- a Chicago Cubs Class A affiliate:
Chess? How many guys in the clubhouse play chess?

There's probably about five of us right now. It's like anything else. The more you play, the better you get. Some guys are coming around and playing a lot better.

Who's the best?

When Jake was here, I'd say it was me or Olin Wick, but since (Paul) Schappert came on the team I'd have to say he's the best.

So you guys are the cerebral type?

Yeah, we're the brain trust of the clubhouse.
