 Brad Ausmus - “If he had any type of run support, he'd have 20 wins easily. He's been that impressive.

His velocity hasn't gone up.”
 Brad Ausmus - “I don't think he's moving out here to be living close to me, per se, ... I think the idea of living in this climate and his affinity to golf is a big attraction for Baggy. There are tons of golf courses out here, but I've never played golf with him out here.”
 Brad Ausmus - “I've seen him pitch better, but he's always got good stuff. Even when he's off, he's got good stuff.”
 Brad Ausmus - “The most important thing is that he can use his right arm again. I know he's going to get this surgery to remove the bone spurs. You never know what can happen.

Not a career issue.”
 Brad Ausmus - “I gave Chris Burke a hard time. I told him I played more second than he did.”

 Brad Ausmus - “Generally, if there's any question, I would either tag the guy or throw the ball to first or turn around and look at the umpire and show him the ball and get a definitive out call, ... I see both sides of the issue. I think in Josh Paul's mind, there was no question, and the replay seems to show he caught the ball. I understand why he assumed the batter was out, but by the same token he did reach down toward the ground.”
 Brad Ausmus - “The last two weeks, ... is like water torture. You play, and you look at the scoreboard and try to figure out where it all falls. Time just seems to crawl.”
 Brad Ausmus - “Certainly the game, despite the fact of the wild-card race, is secondary for Roger and his family, but it doesn't surprise me that he wants to go out onto the mound and pitch.”

 Brad Ausmus - “He's always been one of the better offensive players in the game. Despite the fact that he's 40 years old, he continues to be one of the better offensive players. He's a huge part of our offense. We need him to hit like he has for this team to do well.”
 Brad Ausmus - “He's tough to compare to anyone, I think, because of not only his success but the longevity of his success. I mean, who pitches for 20-some years and has only one losing season and at the age of 43 has a sub-2.00 ERA”
 Brad Ausmus - “We're different. We have a healthy Andy Pettitte, which certainly helps. We also don't have Jeff Kent, Carlos Beltran and a healthy Jeff Bagwell.

If he comes in here and two weeks into it he can't swing the bat or he's back to where he was last year, swinging the bat and it turns to pain, I think he would say, 'I'm not able to play.' Barring that, I think he has every intention of playing this entire year.”

 Brad Ausmus - “The ump sees what, 225, 250 pitches a night and get the great majority of them right. But it's not like his call scored any runs. They did that on their own.”

 Brad Ausmus - “When you have a record like that against a particular team, there has to be some luck involved as well. Roy is one of the best pitchers in the league. If anyone would have a chance to go undefeated against a particular team, it would be him.”
