Small Talk: Mike Carp Talks Cars, Candy And Bowling

In this week’ edition of “Small Talk,” Mike Carp answers big questions from little kids.

1. What’s your favorite color and car?
1. My dad had a green Mustang, but I have a red one. Red Sox, red car. Works out for me.

2. Does your grandfather give you any candy?
2. I always raid my grandpa’s stash of candy. When I was little he’d always give me candy, too, when I did something good or had a good game.

3. Why do you like baseball?
3. It’s all I’ve ever really liked my whole life. I’m fortunate to be able to do something I love so much and have fun with it. Hopefully we’ll get back to where we were last year because I was jumping around like a little kid at the end of the year.

4. Are you a good bowler?
4. Not as good as I want to be. I have to step my game up.

5. Do you forget words to songs?
5. All the time. I think I’m a better singer alone but usually I forget the words and nobody is around to hear me mess it up.

6. What do you like to watch on TV?
6. I do like Scooby-Doo, but growing up the old Looney Toons were my favorite. Bugs Bunny and all of them. They had me going when I was a little kid.
