Greg Holland and the mound visit

A while back I asked Royals closer Greg Holland how he feels about mound visits and since he’ll probably pitch in the All-Star game tonight, now seems like a good time to post this piece. What I wanted to know was if there was ever time in Greg’s life that he was standing on the pitching mound wishing someone would come out and make a visit. Most pitchers I’ve gotten to know hate mound visits; they’re trying to accomplish something and a mound visit just seems like an interruption of the process.
