I don't want to look back and be looking at three or four teams and what they're doing. We still have to keep our eyes on Boston.

First couple of pitches, it all came back to me, line drives up the gaps. Then I thought, 'What the hell am I doing?' I put the bat down and never went back there. I know I'm never going to be what I once was. And I'm okay with that.

He's a tough little kid, there's a lot to like. These games down the stretch are hard to win.
