Losing is never easy. It ruins your day.
It's surreal because you look on TV and see the streets where (wife) Brooke and I used to drive down and it makes it feel so much more close to home.
A slider. He hung that one a little bit up the middle and I was able to stay back on it.
What do you think? We hate it every single day.
It was the first time he threw a breaking ball since his broken finger.
I like being in control. You feel like you've been a solid factor in winning over, say, a first baseman or a right fielder. That's why I like it a lot. It's such an important role.
He has a little experience as a closer, plus there's no doubt about his stuff. It's all about the mental challenge, and we've got the support here to help him through that.
He's kept his sinker low and located his slider on both sides. Whatever I read about him, he's fit to a tee.
He didn't miss it. Everything was down to Damon. We had been pounding Jeter in all day, so we wanted to go down and away with the splitter. Instead, it was up - exactly the opposite of where we wanted it.
The deepest in the league, by a long shot. They're all really patient hitters. It's not often you have all nine guys who play tough and take pitches. You've got to go the full nine innings, especially against these guys.
It's just a matter of time before those broken-bat hits fall our way. And things will work our way and we'll get out of this.
Usually if you have a shift on, they're paid to hit, not paid to bunt. That's a guy that can hit the ball out of the park with any pitch. With Giambi, if he takes a drag bunt, thank you for the single.
