There are no days off in our division. Even a team like Tampa Bay can beat you up.
I make too much money to play a game I love to ever feel sorry for myself.
I'm confident in myself, either way. I've pitched big games all my life.

I've definitely always wanted to be the guy they tell, 'Here's the ball. Go do it.'
The thing about throwing a fastball is, you want it to be easy, you want it to be effortless.
