Author: Shapiro Quotes Category: Money Quotes
"I got the opportunity to call two flips. The White Sox called the other and all three times it came up heads for us."
"The opportunity to explore [a long-term deal] is still there for multiple guys. At this point, [Peralta] is the only guy we've talked to specifically."
"We're used to playing close games against them. We just need to do a better job of finishing them off."

"Coco and Grady have similar skills, and we're extremely excited about Grady's future. Coco profiles best as a center fielder, which allowed us to be opportunistic and get a whole lot of value for him, which, in the end, was too much to turn down."

"A big part of it is we've stayed healthy, ... I'd like to think some of it is luck and some of it is design. We're so risk-averse, we have to look at other things other clubs don't have to look at."

"There are two relationships that are crucial to success. One is the GM-owner, and the other is the GM-manager. If there's not alignment in vision in where you're trying to go between either of those two relationships, then what happens is wasted energy, frankly."
"We want him to throw quality strikes, not just hard strikes. He's going to be a contributor for us this year. Maybe not from day one, but at some point this season he'll be a factor for us."
Author: Shapiro Quotes Category: Quality Quotes
"In Andy we are acquiring a right-handed power hitter who is also a good defensive third baseman. It is difficult to acquire a player of Andy's caliber and skill set via trade or free agency and third base is a position of need in our organization."
Author: Shapiro Quotes Category: Power Quotes
"The question and the unknown on him is going to be how much more power he's got. That's an unknown. ... Last year, he was very bad against left-handed pitching. Very bad."
Author: Shapiro Quotes Category: Power Quotes
"The best option is when a player picks it up himself by his level of performance. He genuinely has a passion for the game and plays on a daily basis like he enjoys it. That is representative of the attributes we want in our players."
"We have a bunch of young guys who really care about each other, and they were trying too hard, ... Victor Martinez won two batting titles (in the minors). He was going to hit. Aaron Boone fell into a huge hole. He's almost out of it."

Author: Shapiro Quotes Category: Value Quotes
"There's nothing new on Brandon. We're still engaged in some conversations with other clubs. We're going to get the value for the player he is now, not the player he was projected to be."
Author: Shapiro Quotes Category: Value Quotes
"It might be an easier deal to do next year because we'll have a clearer sense what the value is heading into the first year of arbitration."

"We probably would not have done that if not for the other trade, though we like Jason quite a bit. But we would not have taken Arthur off the club if we couldn't add another pitcher to work in an eighth-inning role."
Author: Shapiro Quotes Category: Trade Quotes
"When you trade for a guy, you don't know his mental approach and the kind of teammate he is. That was probably the most encouraging thing, in addition to his physical tools. He fits in well with our team and our clubhouse."
Author: Shapiro Quotes Category: Trade Quotes
"It's an undesirable side effect of a good trade."
