Waste campaign. To learn more, you can read SN's story here.MORE: Watch 'ChangeUp,' a new live whiparound show on DAZN SPORTING NEWS: What's your goal? What's your measure of success?BRENT SUTER: Ideally, with the StrikeOut Waste campaign, get that image of the dugout clean, in terms of having people use the bottles more than not. -wide, have some adoption of the bottle program and have every stadium have LED-lights, every stadium have 100-percent compost. In terms of all the concession-ware, all the cups, have people sort it out into compost piles. Instead of recycling and trash, you have recycling, compost and trash. That would be a big step for .SN: And for you, personally?BS: Try to live a zero-landfill life, a zero-fossil fuel-energy life. That's what I want to be. That would be tremendous.SN: What do fans need to know about living an eco-friendly life?BS: The easy, low-hanging fruit so to speak, reusable water bottles, reusable grocery bags, recycling, composting, would be great, too. Easy stuff to eliminate waste.SN: Without putting any of your teammates on the spot, present or former, has anybody ever pushed back on your eco-forward ideas?BS: There's been some push back, but more it's been good debate and good dialogue. We actually have a good amount of environmental dialogue in the Brewers clubhouse about that stuff, and it's good learning for both sides. I learn from them what works in terms of motivation, and what they're seeing, and what the skeptical arguments are and how to tackle those. I try to talk to them about the science and the common sense of, this is how we're living, how many resources we're using. It's gotta change to be more in balance. I enjoy the dialogue a lot. SN: OK, now for the fun questions: You're getting pumped in the gym. What's your go-to song or artist?BS: Laughs. "Fat-Bottomed Girls" from Queen.SN: That's a fantastic song. BS: I just love that song. A lot in the offseason, if I was struggling, I'd throw that on. Queen gets me going. Singing the opening lines to "Fat-Bottom Girls:" Oooohhhhh.....SN: Pizza or tacos?BS: I had this veggie pizza at Slice pizza last night, which is probably the best pizza I ever had. So I'm really in that mode right now. I'm gonna say pizza.SN: New York or Chicago style?BS: New York. Deep-dish Chicago style is good, especially with a lot of veggies on it.SN: You know, if you get Chicago-style, it has to be good Chicago-style or else it'll suck. But if you come to New York, pretty much any slice of pizza you get, it's gonna be fantastic.BS: We also went to 99-cent pizza. And I ask my cousin: "Are you sure it's gonna be good pizza? Dollar slice?" and he was like, "No, trust me." And it was good. Laughing. SN: OK, last question: Batman or Iron Man?BS: In terms of favorite? That's a good question. I like the Batman movies a little better so I'm gonna go with that.
