These are really good games, fun to pitch in and fun to battle in, but I wish they'd come out on our side a little more often.
The guy's won 20 games twice and they talk about him going unnoticed. He's not unnoticed around here.
I'm just glad we're advancing. As we move on, the games will be a little larger and our guys will not only be able to play a few more innings in the field but you'll be able to see a certain amount of pitchers be able to throw a few more innings.
I can't imagine he would throw at him, otherwise, he would ... get himself thrown out of one of the most important games of his career.
It's a legendary name, a guy that I've met on several occasions at a couple of golf tournaments,
That's where I am right now. Obviously, it's Opening Day, and I'm about to put a golf visor on and enjoy a game.
I'm excited to be a part of it. Obviously. this is a good group of guys. We'll be ready to go.
It's just disappointing, ... I don't like coming out of those and putting Brad in that situation. I know he loves those situations, too. But when it doesn't work out ... you hate to come out on the short end of it.
I'd like to say I haven't seen it before, but I've seen it before. It's hard to even shake your head at it anymore.
I was pitching on all adrenaline and challenging them. I was throwing the ball right down the heart of the plate.
Right now, I'm thinking about winning a game on Friday. I just hope it's going to mean something.
Two split-fingers hurt my elbow like you wouldn't believe, and I've got a heartbeat in the back of my shoulder right now.
You know in 1982, the year we came in tied for 3rd, we probably had a better team - I mean as far as talent. When we came back the following year and won it, our pitching staff was a little more experienced and it was such a thrill.
When I look back at the tapes, your first everything, your first All-Star Game, your first playoff experience, it just seems like it went by really fast.
That might be somebody's only chance to see me pitch. They might have driven four hours to get there. I'm going to be out there if I can help it.
My only day off is the day I pitch.
If I get two strikes, I'll go to a pitch maybe that will help induce that a little bit.
I still remember my team at UT jumping on me after getting that final out against Alabama to win the National Championship in '83.
But I'm not looking forward to trying to strike out a lot of guys.
But I got a guy on third, I was in a jam the other day in a game, all those situations, when you need a strikeout there, in big spots. But we are very aware of that fact, that these guys put the ball in play.
I don't bat an eye at stuff like that. I've had my share of wins. If I worried about the games I should have won, it would probably drive me crazy. It was a fun game to pitch in.
Great theater. Whatever you want to call it.
It was my fault, because once he made the play, I thought it was going to be somewhat of an easier play. Then we made eye contact.
Every time I toe the rubber, it's no different for me than it was in the World Series.
The reason why I ended up stopping over there was my showing him respect back. They took the time out to come to Houston and speak to me about the future.
