The players get no respect around here. They give you money, that's it, not respect. We get constantly dogged and players from other teams love to see that. That's why nobody wants to play here.
Honestly, at one time I though Babe Ruth was a cartoon character. I really did, I mean I wasn't born until 1961 and I grew up in Indiana.
I'd like to say this was our worst game. Unfortunately, I can't.
This guy is working all week and he brings his son to this show, has to pay to get in, maybe for a picture and then for an autograph. These guys have to think you're a real ass with your head down all the time signing.
I can't concern myself with what's going on with the club or what the media is writing. If you pay attention to those things, that's when you get yourself in trouble.
I don't want to look back and be looking at three or four teams and what they're doing. We still have to keep our eyes on Boston.
First couple of pitches, it all came back to me, line drives up the gaps. Then I thought, 'What the hell am I doing?' I put the bat down and never went back there. I know I'm never going to be what I once was. And I'm okay with that.
He's a tough little kid, there's a lot to like. These games down the stretch are hard to win.
It's never going to be the same as Wakefield, ... But who knows? I have no idea if it helps or not. If we did it all year long, maybe.
He always seemed to come through with big hits and big plays. He was a tough guy to get out, and more than anything, you really didn't want Kirby up with the game on the line or really anytime with men on base.
Managers have people second-guessing them all the time.
I'm always writing at night - things I would change, things I would do differently. When I write a note, it sticks in my head differently.
I definitely want to manage. I just don't think it's the time right now.
I've wanted to manage a long time and I've been moving in that direction.
I have had many occasions this year where I questioned and second-guessed my decision in a game, but it comes down to learning from mistakes and being accountable for what you did right or did wrong.
