We scored runs. He didn't give them back as rapidly as we did. David Wells knows how to pitch and we need him to have a great month of September and get us back to where we need to be.
I think that's just part of my character. I just feel like injuries will happen if you don't play hard. That's the least I can do is always go out there and give it my all.
We're definitely better than what we've been showing. When you give up four runs, with our offense we should be winning but we're not.
As long as he can cut down the angles, maybe work it so where he has some shorter throws, he'll be fine. He knows the pitching staff, so he knows how to position himself. I don't think he's going to give center fielders a bad name. He's a solid player.
That guy . . . well, if he ever needed anything -- anything at all -- I'd give it to him. That's how I feel about him.
You know they're booing a uniform now. They don't boo bad players. They boo good players.
He looked good. His sinker was working and his changeup was good. He's going to have a big year.
That was good, just seeing Keith out there, doing his thing. He's only going to get better.
They're a team that's going to be very scary. If their pitching stays healthy, they're going to be very, very good.
He's the best pitcher in the American League, period. Fortunately, he didn't have his A game. That shows how good he is.
This place has been very good to our team. A bunch of our fans cannot get tickets in Boston. For them to come down on a weekend and take part in this, that says a lot.
I was making sure he would take me out to get some sushi this year, take me to some good Japanese restaurants. I told him I'll take him to some good Thai restaurants.
I was thinking about cutting my hair right after the season. I knew if I came here it would be a big deal.
It seems like we're ready. We're focused. We know what job at hand is.
I know how it works. They hate seeing a Yankee uniform.
Let's hope so. We've still got to play well.
We are rolling pretty good. Our offense seems to have found something. This is the type of lineup where anybody can step up and hurt you.
New York came after me aggressively and that's what sealed the deal.
What we really need is for me to get hot and stay hot. When I go, this team really takes off.
I thought I stayed inside the ball enough. But as soon as it lost steam, that's when it blew foul. It was close. It was something we could have used. I think Alex Cora would have scored from first on that. Unfortunately, it didn't work.
There's no panic, we know we're a good team. No way we thought we'd be in this situation, 1-4, but this team can build a lot of wins in a row.
I thought all the players did a good job representing the game. I think now people are going to appreciate how the game is played in other countries.
I thought we'd find a way to win. It's hard to lose when you put that many men on base.
I thought the atmosphere was amazing.
I think the guys were pretty much teasing him saying he should have did that last year. He's the best. I thought he threw the ball well. It was good to see the best right out the chute. I know exactly what I need to work on. Get my timing down. It was a good day.
