 Joe Maddon - “I thought he was very good. Again, putting together a lot of different things. And again, if you see our pitchers now, they're pitching.

 Joe Maddon - “I'd like to see us get as many complete games as we can. Even if it means throwing 120, 125, 130 pitches. If the man is in control and we think he can do something like that, we're going to let him do it.”
 Joe Maddon - “I mean, if he stays at a 1.25 to 1.35, I'll be happy. That makes him a lot more functional against teams that like to run. I think it makes him more comfortable, in that he knows how to control those situations, too.”
 Joe Maddon - “I'd just like to see him go out there and put together some innings and some pitches. Again, his stuff is phenomenally good. We've just got to get him to pitch a little bit more and be a little more consistent with his concepts on how to get batters out. But, physically, this guy is very, very talented. We'll get beyond the other part. Eventually he's going to figure out, mentally, exactly what he wants to do in regard to pitching these games. And when he does, he's going to be very good for a long time.”

 Joe Maddon - “When he goes out to the mound, the pitchers truly listen. If he comes in the dugout and has something to say, everybody stops. I like that. I'm seeing Toby gaining confidence, like a quarterback. I like what I'm seeing. It leads to more leadership qualities.”

 Joe Maddon - “Right now, they're putting themselves in jeopardy, kind of. I think Hendrickson, by pitching on Saturday, is going to be fine. Mori, I'm a little bit more concerned about, because he can only play long toss at this point.

 Joe Maddon - “I like the concentration. This team is not known for that.”
