I was hoping he'd make a mistake.

I haven't been getting on base as much as I'd like to be. This shows that speed can play a part. You don't expect three bad pickoff throws. You see something new in baseball every day.

He throws a lot of strikes. And the pitches we did get to hit, we didn't do anything with them.

It was good to create a little havoc on the bases.

They've been picking me up all year. So it's good for me to help those guys out a bit.

For us, every night is a heavyweight bout. You see guys concentrating more, getting more excited, getting more upset. We've got no room for error anymore.

We're all right -- but nobody likes to get their butts kicked. Who's to say we can't go on a tear? Definitely, we miss [Lee]. No sense talking about it every day. He's not coming back until after the All-Star break.

It was nice to pick up the offense. They've been picking me up all season long.

It's amazing ? it looks like he's just playing catch with the mitt, even with the movement on his pitches. The other day, St. Louis has a good hitting lineup, and they were missing balls by a foot. You want the definition of pitching, it's him. You wonder how he gets it done.
