So after his Arizona Diamondbacks dipped from NL West champions in 2011 to a .500 team in 2012, Gibson is at work building the kind of team he likes, one that, to use one of his favored words, ``grinds'' to get its victories.
Nothing flashy, just hard work, hustle and success based on good team chemistry and aggressive, hard-nosed play.
With Gibson the one setting the tone.
As he put it after pitchers and catchers reported for spring training on Monday, ``81 and 81 does not sound good to me at all, and I took it very personally.''
