Pressure wasn't the problem. Everyone has pressure on them at this level. He threw really well. If we had it to do over, we'd do the same thing.
[Devine] is going to be a great pitcher in this league someday.
It was greatest moment I've ever had on the baseball field. Everything just felt right, and it was awesome.
Has calluses older than McCann. The kid was 83 days old when Clemens broke in with the Red Sox. He was still in diapers when Clemens won his first Cy Young Award (1986). He went through puberty and had already discovered the joys of being a young man laboring in Rome and Myrtle Beach by the time Clemens had Nos. 2-7.
I was going to go up hacking, ... Pitcher on deck. Two outs. He can start throwing his dirtiest stuff up there. So I was definitely hacking.
You know, he's one of the greatest pitchers of all time. Just to get a pitch up, out over the plate, and I connected - it was neat.
With the magnitude of the game, catching 18 innings, it didn't seem like that, ... If it was a regular-season game, maybe it would have seemed like that. But the atmosphere here, and what we needed to accomplish, it wasn't as big of a deal.
Our mentality is that we're going to play the same if it's the seventh game of the World Series or a game that doesn't mean anything. I don't think the pressure is going to get to any of us.
We'll just have to regroup and come back next year. We're really not thinking about next year right now. We will in a few days.
