It's nice that the White Sox lost, but we have to come back and take care of business.

They could throw the Bad News Bears out there, and we've still got to lock in and play baseball.

The big thing is, there is no tension on this team. I've been with some (Houston) clubs going down the stretch in a playoff race, and teams get on edge. On this club, everyone is so relaxed it's almost like they don't care. But the results say otherwise.

I wish I could have put away a couple of guys when I had the chance and I just didn't get it done.

We could have folded up tonight.

I didn't do much well my last two starts. Today, even when I did fall behind in the count, I was able to make quality pitches. When I fell behind in my last two starts, I'd just throw it down the middle. You can't get away with that up here.

I have no explanation for the double plays. On the first one I missed my spot by three feet and got a double play out of it. I'll take it.

He's a very good hitter. I've faced him quite a bit in the past. I just didn't make my pitches. I feel like if I can make my pitches, I can get him out.

I know right now, the division is tough. It's probably not the best place to be playing for a team that's rebuilding. At the same time, I want to be here when it happens.
