It's like he has a dent in his ankle. Not blowing anything out is pretty amazing, to tell you the truth.

I don't know if it was our offense or the flu.

It's been our Achilles' heel all year long. We have one of the best pitching staffs in baseball and we just can't support them offensively.

It really was a playoff atmosphere. I'm sweating, and it wasn't even that hot.

It was his game until he gave up a run. You don't get too many opportunities in the majors to pitch a 1-0 shutout.

Kenny Rogers is not the guy he likes to face very often, so we sat him out. But he was ready to play. We've lost a lot of people, and Jacque is one guy who needs to step up.... Hopefully that's a good start for him to get on a roll.

It was nice to see some smiles in the clubhouse for once.

People will say we're actually alive and that's not bad.

Maybe we can put some fear in them, They have a single-digit lead (over Cleveland) now, so you know they're starting to feel the effects. And that's half the battle, to see how people handle things.
