"I think his experience is invaluable. He doesn't have any fear and he doesn't take his time. He dictates the pace, and it's a quick pace. I think it's good for him to be in this role, being where we are, having his experience. I think he can handle it probably better than any other pitcher we have."

"It's been very exciting, with a little bit of mixed emotions at first. I've made my home in San Diego and feel pretty entrenched there. But from a baseball standpoint, I'm very excited to play here with this team that has this type of tradition and fan base."

"I have never experienced it before, at any level. Not little league, college or high school. Just complete euphoria. You kind of have to take a step back and think, 'Is the game really over?' Do the math real quick. It's a tremendous feeling to say the least."

"Obviously with Congress kind of stepping up their intensity in terms of legislation, that pushed both sides to get it done a little quicker. I don't know whether this will stop legislation.

"My strength has been consistency, playing the same way every day. If you don't, baseball can drive you nuts. You can make a fundamentally sound swing and get a negative return. Then, you can make a poor swing and get a positive return. It is a roller coaster that you can't ride."

"We've got to get on base and score when we have the opportunity. Even in the five or six hole, I'll be taking the same approach with the hit-and-run, moving the ball around. That's how you manufacture runs."
"Coco will be running. He'll be stealing some bases."

"Talking to Tito, he has kind of a National League mind-set. He likes to hit-and-run in the right situation. We don't want to make outs on the bases with David and Manny behind us. But still, they're not going to hit a home run every time. If we can get to third base with less than two outs, it only helps them. So you want to be aggressive and smart."
