I've still never seen anyone like him.

Didn't want to make a public thing out of it.

We don't talk about the things that happened to us, ... If we didn't have some issues, I mean, what coulda been, coulda been.

We always thought we were the team to beat. We knew we had the talent to compete with anybody.

I always think of how promising it was when me and Doc came up.

It was a mistake on my part, ... I should have never loaned this guy my car to begin with. He's no longer my friend.

I'm not ashamed of who I am. Of course I'm ashamed of the things that have happened. But with life experiences, you're able to give back and help others.

Doc was better than Roger Clemens, ... Doc was more dominating. He was going to have a better career than Clemens.

And whenever Doc used to pitch.
