"You have your starter out there and you want him to get those outs. That's a learning experience. In those situations, getting big outs in a tie ballgame, it's his game -- win or lose. He made the big pitch there, and we came through and scored some runs for him. ... His last two [starts] have been really good ballgames, and he deserved to win them."
"You can't say that a lot of thought went into something like that, when you kick your hat."
"We have a guy that has 18 homers in Double-A and his agent is going to start calling if we start letting all this happen ... You don't let other people dictate what we do."
I don't know how you prepare for those things. We're not used to seeing it and it's embarrassing for this organization and our fans. I put that on my shoulders -- that's my baseball team out there.
