I's taken me a great deal to get here. I don't plan on missing anything.
I'm pretty much the one that goes to the mound.
I might say something in Spanish; it all depends on how I'm feeling, what the situation is.
We've got a lot of pressure going. This is for my Latin counterpart.
We have to have great pitching performances from our guys, and we have to take it from there.
Bottom line is, you have to pitch. You want timely hits.
This is what you work for, putting all the other crap that you hear aside. Just being able to participate in a World Series is pretty much everything. But you do want to win!
I had an opportunity with Baltimore to make it to the World Series, and that didn't happen.
For some reason in Spring Training, everything just clicked. You don't try to do anything in Spring Training but get ready, but things fell into place.
We spent a lot of money on some players.
When somebody was looking in my locker, it was like going in my desk. Somebody happened to be looking in my locker when they shouldn't have been.
The ability to communicate with everybody, regardless of who are you are, is a great thing.
I don't have a no-trade clause. I figure someone is going to pick me up.
I'm not afraid to swing the bat. If they elect to pitch to me, I'm going to swing. I'm not as picky as Mr. Sheffield. I'll swing at something over my head.
