I wasn't playing mind games with anybody, I just said what I said. I am responsible for it, but I wish everybody would fall asleep for that one and let me go out there and do my thing.

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.

Pedro Martinez
It's always hard. I felt like I was in command of the game -- and all of a sudden, in two pitches, I lost it. It was a little bit frustrating. I did whatever possible to give my team an opportunity to win, and I blew it at the end. No excuses. They battled and never gave up.

I hope he loosens up. New York is his hometown, ... Just respect his family.

We're in the same position we were in yesterday.

I don't go out there expecting no-hitters or anything like that. I go out there trying to make things happen, actually expecting them to hit the ball, but where I want, not precisely where they want to. That's what happened today, and I was lucky enough to be flirting with a no-hitter.

My first ball I ever got from a Big League player I actually got to purchase in Dodger Stadium in a silent auction, was Reggie Jackson.

I want to feel secure personally. Have a competitive team out there -- I really want to win; I hate losing -- and, I guess, I want to be treated like a normal person.

Pedro Martinez
I was as big as I could be. I made good pitches and did whatever possible.
Pedro Martinez

The game doesn't change.

lay down for at least 20 days in a row.
