I'm here. And I don't know what the future is going to bring one way or the other. I'm not into speculating about it or even talking about it.

Even though I will not be a part of it next year, Rays fans should look forward to the team's continued success. With this core group of young players and other promising talent coming up through the minors, the future is bright for the Devil Rays.
He dug his heels in there. We scored five off him in two innings and he went six innings and didn't give up any more.
Good ballgame, what can I say
Young pitchers are going to be inconsistent. Young pitchers, when you expect really good things, you tend to get a little disappointed.
I would probably hate to end my career with three losing seasons like I did in Tampa Bay.
My talk in Toronto was from the heart, ... It was from the heart.
Whatever it is, I hope it continues.
The two areas we need to improve on is to get away from the bottom total in errors -- I think we're last in the league -- and we're next to last in ERA.
The irony about this whole thing is that Joe is one of the two that had done it, and here we beat his team for me to join that elite group. I'm honored.
We need a real potent bat in the lineup, we need starting pitching, we need some late-inning bullpen help and then we need to beef up our bench.
Let me tell you what -- I came here because I thought it could be done, ... I didn't come here just to be home. Being home and getting beat wears off pretty quick.
I think Tejada thought he had a pretty good shot at throwing out Gathright at first base. But, boy, he scooted down the line.
(Steinbrenner) was the one who encouraged it. He got me thinking about coaching and managing and learning that side of the game. And who thought a year later (1986) I'd be managing
He had a high pitch count there for a while, then all of a sudden he really started throwing strikes. I thought he was getting better as the game progressed.
I'm free, but it doesn't mean that I have anything in mind or I'm looking for a job. I'll entertain, but I'm not talking about the Yankees' job, but in general. I'm prepared to sit out and play some golf and catch up on my leisure time. I'm unemployed.
You always have regrets, but I needed to get close to home. My dad passed away this spring I spent some valuable time with him. I had a couple of other things that were pressing ... Now, I'm a little freer again.
You're down to under 20 games remaining. Whatever degrees you got to turn it up to, now is the time to do it. They look more focused.
We'll address that at the right time. I will talk with the players, too. I haven't talked with anyone, not the coaching staff - anybody. At the right time I will do that.
At the time he had no feeling in his forearm. He's OK.
More preventative than anything else. We wanted to cut his pitch count down. Last time he threw a quite few pitches.
I don't want any distractions. When the time is appropriate, we'll comment about my situation.
You're down to under 20 games (to play), whatever degree you have to turn it up to, it's time.
He told me that in Boston personally the last time we played there, ... He never expounded on it, but he did mention it.
