So in this 45-second audio clip that is a must listen for all Angels fans, AM 830's Jeff Biggs has the opportunity to ask Troy Percival about the Angels lefty Scot Kazmir. Ever the professional, Biggsy predicates his question by noting that Kazmir's lack of success is not reflection on his effort and describes the many ways that Kaz is trying to get back on track.
Percival's answer is in the form of sage advice that mimics some of recent history's most popular philosophers:
- Master Yoda on effort: Do or Do Not. There is No Try.
- The Tombstone of poet Charles Bukowski reads: Don't Try
- Troy Percival: Stop Trying.... grab the ball, go out there, throw it.

Ya know that feeling when you are looking at the past and suddenly you realize that you're looking at the future? Yeah...
