Steroids is cheating, and winning without honor is not winning.
I care what people think, but that doesn't change what I say. I am who I am.
After the second inning, I was as down as I've been in a long, long time, ... Emotionally frustrated. I was at a crossroads where I could continue to beat myself down or make adjustments.
I felt as strong when I came out of the game as I did when I went in.
I didn't feel any different physically than I have felt in the past, ... We used all my pitches. I got outs with all of them. We located better today. I think that's obvious.
Physically, I feel great
I knew coming into this series which game I was going to pitch. I knew it had a chance to be the swing game.
They've never booed a player who [stunk].
This was a big swing game. Hopefully now we come out and win this game [today]. Now the worst we're going to leave here is a series up on these guys. This late in the season, that's a big deal.
My splitter was better, ... I've got to throw it. I have to have it. I can't not use it.
I just want to pitch a good game
I am human, when people write bad stuff about me it bothers me, but I know that will never end.
I tell people all the time that without the fans, I've got nothing.
I'm a good person. I don't wish hateful things on people. I don't hate anybody. I know that I treat people right.
In this I-me society, my job is to get people to buy into something bigger than themselves.
