SAN FRANCISCO -- Brian Sabean doesn't have a lot of patience with stupid questions.
I know this, because when I talked to him during spring training last March, I could tell that he considered a number of my questions stupid. He answered all of them, but some of his responses were hard to make out between the gritted teeth.
Which isn't to say that Sabean is unkind. He just doesn't suffer fools gladly, something that's true of a lot of my favorite people.
