I want to give him back-to-back days playing. I want to keep him sharp. I want him to feel confident and ready to go for the future.
He is the one who is throwing the ball better. That's why, for the next couple of weeks, I can't please players, I have to win games.
We had (Bobby) Jenks up and I just went by Mark to see how he feels, ... He told me the last inning he felt good and I looked at his arm and talked to Cooper about it and said, Well, you're throwing the ball well. Just give it another one and see what happens.'
I think Mark is one of the most underrated pitchers in the game now. Hopefully with this playoff and the World Series people will give him the recognition.
Either way we set the rotation, there are a lot of guys who are going to take nine or 10 days off. You have to figure out how to give these guys (fewer) days, but it's impossible to do it.
If something happened to one of the Venezuelan players, they got hurt, they can't play anymore, they won't give one (bleep) about them. But if they don't play, they will criticize them.
We came back and that's something I feel good about. We never give up.
The game will give you a nice stuff, but your kids are going to be there forever,
Carl is a veteran. We know what to expect from him. When you play this game long enough and believe in your players, you can't give up that easily.
I think he's ready to move on and be on the roster. I don't know if I'll play him or not. I'm not sure. Maybe I'll give him another day.
My philosophy is give me the best pitching staff you can give me and everything else we can figure out.
I think he's a Gold Glove third baseman and we expect a lot from him.
should be a Gold Glove winner.
This isn't golf. It's supposed to be loud.
I was screaming, 'No, no, no,' and then, 'That a boy, good job,'
When you score seven runs you expect to win. Garland just fell apart for a couple of innings. Obviously it's not a good outing.
On paper we look really strong. We have another year to compete. Hopefully we stay healthy. I think we have another good year.
He's got a good fastball and good breaking ball, but I don't think he has enough guts. I want him to be more aggressive.
I think its really disappointing. Jim Thome did a lot of good things for this town. It was kind of embarrassing. I was really surprised.
I don't criticize people who were booing because we went from a 15-game lead to one or two. On the other hand, when you win that many games and people are criticizing and criticizing, it takes the fun away.
I hate Wrigley Field. We'd have to win seven World Series in a row.
He knew he wasn't going to play for the Dominicans. He's not a Dominican. I hate hypocrites. He's full of (bleep).
He knew he wasn't going to play for the Dominicans. He's not a Dominican. I hate hypocrites. He's full of bleep.
He knew he wasn't going to play for the Dominicans. He's not a Dominican. I hate hypocrites. He's full of (expletive).
