Dave McMahon -- When do you have to report back with the Diamondbacks?
Joey Side -- Three weeks from yesterday. I will go up on the 7th, but I don't have to be there until the 10th.
DM -- Do you know which level you will be playing this season?
JS -- No, I am not sure yet. I am going to Tucson and they will tell me then.
DM -- What did you learn the most from your first few months in the minors last year?
JS -- One of the biggest things is that it is not really a team game like college. Even the coaches think individually sometimes. Everyone wants to move up and can on any day.
DM -- You played with former Georgia teammate Brooks Brown last year in the minors, how did he do?
JS -- He only got to pitch about once a week. He started slow, but he got a lot better as the season went on. He reports this week to camp.
DM -- You always hear about crazy road trips in the minors, are they true?
JS -- They are not as bad as they say. We don't have a crappy bus, we have a nice bus. But we will go on 6-7 series on a road at a time. The worst part is sometimes we get back on a trip at 7-8 o'clock in the morning and then have to play that night.
DM -- What have you done since your season ended?
JS -- Coach gave us 2-3 months off. So I started working out again in December and I have been working out all the time now.
DM -- Did you go to any of the Bulldog games last weekend?
JS -- I was at all three. I was in the dugout for the first game and then I sat in the stands with my dad for the other two.
DM -- Obviously there were a lot of great regional and super regional games, but what Georgia baseball games do you remember the most?
JS -- My freshman year, we went out to Florida and swept them. Georgia has never done that before. I always had a huge series offensively, too. We did the same thing this past year, too.
DM -- What Georgia game from other sports do you remember going to?
JS -- Well, I wasn't there, but I remember watching it. When Greenie was a redshirt freshman and when he beat Tennessee up there on a pass to Verron Haynes in the closing seconds. I went to high school with him and I remember watching him march the ball down the field after they scored and he led the Bulldogs to victory.
DM -- What are you going to miss most about the Georgia games?
JS -- I love everything about the atmosphere. I will miss the players and the coaches. Just being here the first few games was tough.
