We have the future Roger Clemens in the house, ... That kid, man, I'll tell you, this guy is something else.
Whoever has the best pitching will win the series. There will be a lot of excitement in these games with the Yankees. Players can go snow cold or 130 degrees. I've seen guys on our team go like that when they play the Yankees.
You have to bring your A' game. Those guys, man, you can't give them a lot of chances, ... They've been coming back on us the whole season.
I finally went, OK, I've got to give up on my pitch and try to look for his pitch. That was the only reason why I hit it.
We have to pick each other up. Our pitching, they've been up and down. They pick us up a lot. We need to do the same thing. It's not like they want to give it up. The other teams are hitting good. That's how the games go. It's all about winning games, because that's all we need right now.
What happened to me should teach everybody that you should never give up on anybody.
You think every hitter out there wins a Gold Glove ... Dude, Jose Canseco won an M.V.P.
Like they always say, good pitching beats good hitting. That's basically the situation that we faced (in Puerto Rico). We faced I would say was the best pitching in the whole series.
We know how good a pitcher Curt Schilling is. The opposing team is prepared to put good swings on him. When he's pitching like he did last Saturday, everybody knows he has it and teams are bringing their 'A' game.
I think Mannys been hanging out with Ricky Williams.
The Greatest Clutch Hitter in the History of the Boston Red Sox.
They had it made in 20 minutes. They were talking about history and stuff. I don't know.
It's an honor because Edgar was one of my superheroes when I was coming up.
I feel this is my house and I've got to protect this house.
Everybody has something to prove each year. Everybody has a responsibility in this game. Even the batboy.
You just have to go as far as you can go. Everyone works his way up.
I'm just trying to work hard every day, trying to be a better player and one day, to be right there with them, one of those special hitters.
All I like to do is work every day and have an idea what I want to do.
I come to play everyday.
I thought the ball wasn't going out,
I was expecting something else. But I guess they've been watching ESPN a lot, ... I saw a lefty warming up, so I thought they'd bring him in, but they didn't. I'm so happy that Manny got hit.
Everybody in this game needs help, even I need help. When you are young and talented like Mo, you like to have people around you who you can learn from. That's why we are here. At one time, we were his age. The same thing happened to us.
They're good. They can play in the big-league level any time.
The last time they were here, we went back to my house, ... We hung out together. He was telling me, I remember when we were coming up with Seattle.' Alex, when he got to Seattle, he went like straight up to the big leagues. I went quick to the big leagues too, but not as fast as he went.
You know what, the last time they were here, we went back to my house. We hung out together,
