 Pete Mackanin - “If I didn't have the bullpen problem, I probably would have taken him out sooner. Six walks is a good indication you're not making quality pitches.”
 Pete Mackanin - “David and Goliath. I didn't think Roger was at his best, to be honest with you. But I think it is a thrill for us to beat him. I think the guys have got to feel good about themselves. He's a Hall of Fame pitcher, and we beat him.”
 Pete Mackanin - “That guy Eckstein, I hate facing him with the game on the line. He's an outstanding clutch hitter.”
 Pete Mackanin - “We'll take it inning by inning. We'll hope he can economize his pitches.”
 Pete Mackanin - “He probably threw more pitches early on than he wanted. But I thought he looked very good for a guy who hadn't pitched in over three weeks.”
 Pete Mackanin - “He threw 74 pitches and hadn't pitched in a while, so we just decided to be careful with it. Not that I wanted to, because we need pitchers to go late in the game. I thought he was pretty good. He had more pitches early than he probably wanted, but he looked very good for a guy who hasn't pitched in three weeks.”
 Pete Mackanin - “Any time a team (rallies) like that, it always seems to be a big deal. But for us especially, because we've got our backs against the wall. Nobody expects us to do much.”
 Pete Mackanin - “That's the best we've seen him in a long time. You could tell by his swagger he felt pretty good about himself. That told us a lot.”
 Pete Mackanin - “With Castillo out, Freddy's shown he's more valuable as an everyday player than part-time. Besides playing well at second and short, he's played excellent third base. It's like having two shortstops on the left side.”
 Pete Mackanin - “I'm sure by the time the season is over we'll all find out what we're doing.”
 Pete Mackanin - “I'm sure by the time the season is over we'll all have an idea of what we're doing. It's a tough situation for everybody. You just kind of sit back and wonder what's going to become of you.”
 Pete Mackanin - “The win was huge. Any time a team does that it is a big deal, for us, especially. We've got our backs against the wall. Nobody expects us to do much. We keep talking about our young players and the mistakes. At some point, somebody's got to do something.”
 Pete Mackanin - “I didn't want to do it. I just felt it was the right thing to do at the time.”
 Pete Mackanin - “In general, that's probably as good as he looked in a long time. Unfortunately, his stamina isn't built up to where we'd like him to be. But it was nice to see him back in somewhat of a pretty good form.”
 Pete Mackanin - “It's a shame. That's as well as we've seen Mark pitch in a long time.”
 Pete Mackanin - “He had a good angle for his pitches, he was down in the zone and he had some good sliders. In general, that's as good as he's looked in a long time.”
 Pete Mackanin - “It's important he plays, but not to the point that he's totally frustrated. It looks to me like he's close to being totally frustrated. I'm going to try to look after him a little bit. He's really not helping the team at this point in time.”
 Pete Mackanin - “It's tough to bring in a guy for his Major League debut with the bases loaded. But I figured everything will be downhill after that. Ollie wasn't throwing strikes, and I figured that was the best way to go at the time.”
 Pete Mackanin - “We were concerned he was going to have a high pitch count early. But he had a good angle down in the zone. He threw some good sliders. In general, that's as good as he's looked in a long time. Unfortunately, his stamina isn't built up to where we'd like it to be.”
 Pete Mackanin - “In the first inning he started off a little shaky. I didn't see good velocity. I didn't see what we were hoping to see. But after the first, he seemed to pitch a lot better. Something happened out there, and he was as good as we've seen in a long time and I'm pretty happy about that.”

 Pete Mackanin - “I think players need a pat on the back but they also need a kick in the rear. They have to understand it's a matter of getting the job done.”
