I think anything is possible if you have the mindset and the will and desire to do it and put the time in.
If someone met me on a game day, he wouldn't like me. The days in between, I'm the goodest guy you can find.
He's (George Steinbrenner) the one who gave me a chance to get to the World Series. This is where I wanted to be all along. We had a couple of nice offers from other teams, but I tied my agents' hands. I told them I wanted to be a Yankee.
Everybody kind of perceives me as being angry. It's not anger, it's motivation.
My only day off is the day I pitch (in regards to how hard he works out during off-days).
If you're going to cook a fresh chicken, it's not a big concern. But if you're going to ship a chicken, there's a change in structure.
I had to will my way through that game. Sometimes, it takes more than talent or more than a 95-mile-an-hour fastball. You have to will it.
My main concern is when it's 2-0, I've got to keep it at 2-0. It gives us a little more of a chance. To give up four more runs, that isn't going to get it done. I don't care who you're facing or who you're playing, it's not going to get it done.
When I get too much rest, I'm usually erotic.
Going to Omaha for the College World Series - the people there are tremendous - huge crowds and a lot of excitement. I still remember those days - you make a lot of friends that you never forget when you win a championship like that
I've been very fortunate. I feel very thankful. I've been able to come home and do some fun things and make it exciting for people here at home
But I'm not looking forward to trying to strike out a lot of guys
Even though I play a professional sport now, I love college baseball
I wish there was a bar I could send opposing teams to and get them hammered or something - I could tell my buddies in New York to leave their places open or something. Playing for the Yankees, guys come at you extremely hard. I have to be ready or I'll be embarrassed
The student body was huge at UT and you had to mature pretty quick, very quick actually. I enjoyed it and it helped me a lot in my life in general - not only in the classroom but on the baseball field as well.
The tradition you have at the University of Texas is like no other. It helped me in the future where I got to play in 2 cities that were rich in tradition.
My only day off is the day I pitch.
Every time I toe the rubber, it's no different for me than it was in the World Series.
He hit the ball so hard, I couldn't even turn around in time to see it go over the fence.
I was pitching on all adrenaline and challenging them. I was throwing the ball right down the heart of the plate.
I wasn't scared (during his first at-bat). I just told them (Mo Vaughn & Kevin Mitchell') to give me all that hockey equipment (forearm pad & shin guard respectively).
Some of my finest memories are from my time at the University of Texas. College baseball, I love it.
You know in 1982, the year we came in tied for 3rd, we probably had a better team - I mean as far as talent. When we came back the following year and won it, our pitching staff was a little more experienced and it was such a thrill.
When you have a chance to take the ball for the world champs, you take the ball.
I've lost a little bit of my fire... I don't want to say I've lost my passion.
