Things are getting a little bit tighter. We have two games left to play and, yeah, there is some pressure there, but we can handle it.
I just want to talk about winning. I don't even want to think about losing. I know we can't be losing games.
The game was huge. We're not out of it, but we need to win. We definitely can't lose any more games.
We definitely can't lose any more games,
That's kind of understandable if he is (upset), ... but that was what I wanted to do. I didn't want to give up more runs.
We can score some runs, but I'm worried about how many we might give up. Our pitching is going to be the key for us.
It's his job to lose, and he won't give it up easily.
If you would have told me that we'd give up three runs, I would have said we would win this game.
That's been my lineup all year. I know guys need days off and stuff, but Pat's been swinging good lately.
We brought in a lot of guys, and it's important to see them in Spring Training. Our roster isn't set. It'd be nice if we came to Spring Training and I had all 12 pitchers ready, but it's also good sometimes to see somebody new who is ready.
Houston's schedule definitely concerns me. Not only are we playing teams in our division, we're playing very good teams that are very tough on us, too.
We got what, 11 hits tonight Did we hit some balls good, yeah. But we're still not raking the ball.
He got off to a real good start and hit a bad spell where he was fatigued. Once he got through that, he's been pretty good.
He's really aggressive in the outfield. His hustle is going to be good for our team.
The bottom line is if you don't win nothing and you come in second, that's not good enough.
They've got to push one another to be the best. He threw a good hook.
Hes going to leave the park if he swings at good balls. He just hit through that pitch. It was already up (in the zone) and he popped it out of the yard.
Michaels was very adequate in center and real good at the corners. As our No. 2 hitter, he concentrated on getting on base and on moving runners, and I think that took away from his power. He did a hell of a job, but I think he could hit more home runs.
I wish I could have found a way to get Ryan Howard up there against a right-hand pitcher. I could have done a whole lot of things. But if I tried to tell you that, I probably would lose you.
I think we're out on a limb right now, hanging over a cliff, and we're trying to find a way to get back.
I don't even want to talk about that. That's a joke. If he just plays like he's been playing, he doesn't need that put into his head. If he keeps that same demeanor, he'll be all right.
I'm just tired of hearing people say it's a good problem to have.
I'm getting tired of hearing people say it's a good problem to have. We've got to find out how we're going to use him.
In six days, we'll either be here or we'll be gone. But what the hell, I don't know if I'm telling you anything you don't know.
How the hell am I going to stop him ... Bell sees the play. He's on his own. He was being aggressive, but he made a bad judgment.
