I didn't even know that was a steal. It's a cheap steal.
That was awesome. That was really cool, getting to meet one of the great power pitchers in the history of the game.
I didn't see the stop sign at all, and then I didn't see that (Barajas) was blocking the plate until it was too late. If I slide, maybe it's a one-run game.
I am ecstatic. Seattle is where I wanted to be...it's where I've always wanted to be. It feels like home to me. I am excited about the direction of the team, and am very, very happy to be here.
All he cares about is hitting. He's really watching, and he sees all the little things in your swing. He's a highly intelligent man.
He always said if he could no longer perform up to his standards or be an everyday player that he would walk away. I enjoyed having him as a teammate, that sarcasm and humor. I have the utmost respect and admiration for what he has done in this game.
He could dish it out like nobody, but he could take it too. He had that sarcastic sense of humor. When you first become his teammate, you see some things and wonder, 'Is he serious or is he joking?' He was always joking.
Our offense has a nice pace, a nice feel right now. We're being aggressive when we have to, being patient when we have to. Good balance up and down the lineup, good approaches at the plate.
It was good to finally be sitting at the adults' table. My first few years here, I wasn't part of it at all.
When I was growing up, it seemed like it was probably the most realistic movie about baseball life. Now that I've lived it, I can say that it is the most accurate.
That's absolutely the way it is, riding the minor league buses. It's one of those movies I could watch over and over again.
About then you're thinking that maybe (the losing streak is over).
It's a great win. I don't know if it's so much a sigh of relief, but we came back and beat the world champions.
I don't know if it's a sigh of relief. But this is a great win for us.
