It's not good, but I don't know how bad it is. Anything I do with twisting, I'll probably feel it.
Anything I do right now with twisting, I'll probably feel it. If I had already gone five good innings, I probably would have come out then, but I wanted to get one more inning in. I didn't think it was that bad.
Hopefully we can win tomorrow and get a little bit of momentum. If we can take a few series in a row and Houston slows down a little bit, everything's going to be right back to where it was before.
So far it?s looking like that. We had the lead for a little bit, now Houston does, and you have Florida and Washington right there. It?s probably going to come down to who gets hot in the last week or two of the season, and there?s no reason why it can?t be us.
I?ll never complain about that.
He?s playing like a veteran. He?s a smart guy and puts a lot of thought into every at-bat. When (Jim) Thome went out of the lineup everyone thought it was a big hit to our offense, and Ryan Howard has picked up the slack.
I didn't feel too much pressure to have to get a win. It's big. Hopefully we can win tomorrow and get a little bit of momentum. If we can take a few series in a row and Houston slows down a little bit, everything's going to be right back to where it was before.
I know it wasn't real pretty,.. That was one of the biggest double plays I've had all year (in the third). I knew we'd get at least one out but I never thought they'd turn it.
That's definitely on our minds.
I did some things, and I realize that no one in this game likes to be shown up,.. If I did anything while I was walking off the field in frustration, I didn't mean it. I'm fine with the explanation [Manuel] gave me.
You can go up in the air and everything is gone. You know, you don't think about baseball. You don't think about anything. It's just something that takes you away from everyday life. I love being in a plane and looking down to see traffic on the freeway.
If I don't make the team out of spring training, I'll keep a good attitude. I'll just go polish up the parts of my game that made me not stay in the big leagues.
I may not be in the weight room as much as some guys, but I get my work done.
Sometimes I felt I got caught up kind of going into the clubhouse non-chalantly sometimes, because all of the other guys in the clubhouse didn't go there with one goal in mind.
Ninety-nine percent of pilots that go up never have engine failure, and the 1 percent that do usually land it. But if you're up in the air and something goes wrong, you pull that parachute, and the whole plane goes down slowly.
