I hope he loosens up. New York is his hometown, ... Just respect his family.
I'm not in the big leagues just because I'm cute.
Georgie Porgie, he might buy the whole league, but he doesn't have enough money to buy fear to put in my heart.
Some of the things I've done are really special.
The bigger the contract, the bigger the responsibility.
Oh believe me, I was fully aware and I tried as hard as I could,
I'm thankful for not ever taking anything illegal.
We want him to pitch as much as possible.
lay down for at least 20 days in a row.
I'm open to play for anybody that would give me respect, treat me the right way, and actually going to make me feel comfortable.
I felt the power in my fastball, ... That's probably why I left so many fastballs up. I was a little more erratic. I just couldn't get the ball over.
Every time I feel mad or something, I run somewhere. It gets my frustrations away. I run and run and run.
That really never happened to me before, ... I learned something different. Franco was running, and I knew I had to try to get him. I looked at the replay and the coach never sent [Giles]. He just ran like somebody was chasing him.
I just try to do what I have to do and let the people out there do what they have to do, which is have fun, scream, yell and jump around. I try to do what I have to do, which is play baseball, and I can only play in that piece of area there, so that's what I try to do.
When I go to the plate, I think about putting the ball in play. It's important to get on base and get some walks, but I don't go to the plate thinking of walking.
Perez hit that ball, but it wasn't like he actually knew what was coming. He just reacted to it, threw the head of the bat on it and it hit the wall. I made the pitch I wanted to, and he happened to hit it. He's a strong kid.
We're in the same position we were in yesterday.
I never expected Giles to take a chance on that play. We're facing a good team, a smart team.
At my Mom's house on the farm, it get's so dark, you look at the stars and and you feel like you can just reach out and grab them. I love her so much and I love this place so much, it hurts. I stay here because I need to find myself again after playing in the States. Here it's me talking. It's my so
I get a lot of kids distracted. Sometimes they got to go cover left field, but they're over here talking to me, getting an autograph.

I believe I have a responsibility that goes along with the money I make. I can help a lot of people.
I know I achieved a lot, and I know I have my little share of respect, but when you talk about playoffs, there is no time to be mad, there is no time to complain, there is no soreness that you can't overcome or pain, sometimes, and I hope I continue to do it. I am going to leave my heart out there f
I do miss competing, being out there - the atmosphere, I do miss it.
I just guess I have to give them credit, ... For them to actually take advantage of my mistakes and hit them out - it wasn't just playing the game hard, but also to keep their concentration level so high that every time I made a mistake - they were my mistakes ï¿½ that they hit them out.
I guess I just have to give them credit, ... Every time I made a mistake, they hit them out.
I think in the World Series it was easy for me to relax. I had a space to actually make mistakes. But the way we're looking right now, we're not going to last very long.
If I wanted to pitch that bad, I probably would. But I don't think I'm in that stage.
I had the opportunity to go with some other teams. But I didn't consider those teams to be contenders, and I was right.
You have to execute. You have to sacrifice your body.
