  • Mays mentioned McCovey and Hart again: "You know Willie and Jim Ray. They're quiet guys. Jim Ray is just a happy-go-lucky guy and McCovey is simply quiet. But in Willie's case, I believe he's gotta start speaking up more. When I leave the Giants, McCovey will be the number-one Giant, and he'll have to go out and talk to the people and get to know them, just like I've had to and enjoy doing.
