Olerud Determined to Keep Playing

"There are some small bones in the foot, and he had some torn ligaments in there. [The surgeon] had to fuse the bones together, and the surgery went fine. The foot is getting better and he continues to rehab it, but he's not running on it yet."-- 2.3.05 Olerud's agent, Joe McIntosh

But He's in the Best Shape of His Life

"I've been in the weight room. I've worked as hard as I ever have this offseason, probably the hardest I ever have. I'm in the best shape I've ever been in just because of this whole thing (Mientkiewicz vs. Millar). I'd do pushups just to keep the nights going by." -- Kevin "Home Run" Millar on MLB.com
