You have to get used to winning. Winning is a habit. Losing is a habit.
It's about time we got one against him, because this is a different team than the one he had been beating. I've faced him for a long time, and I know what he can do. I just see the ball well against him.

My body is healthy 100.
The division has a lot of good teams. Chicago is one of those teams. We have to play good baseball and try to do better if we want to catch them.

We need to change our attitude. We should be over .500.
