I think anything is possible if you have the mindset and the will and desire to do it and put the time in.
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.
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.
Everybody kind of perceives me as being angry. It's not anger, it's motivation.
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.
My only day off is the day I pitch (in regards to how hard he works out during off-days).
When I get too much rest, I'm usually erotic.
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.
My only day off is the day I pitch.
He hit the ball so hard, I couldn't even turn around in time to see it go over the fence.
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.
Andy Pettitte is my friend...I think he misremembers.
I love to work with the younger kids who are trying to live out their dreams, if in fact that's what they plan on doing after college to take the next step. A very select few have that opportunity so when you do have the opportunity you know, those guys take advantage of it.
If I get two strikes, I'll go to a pitch maybe that will help induce that a little bit.
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.
I don't want to speak to two empty chairs.
Even though I play a professional sport now, I love college baseball
When I look back at the tapes, your first everything, your first All-Star Game, your first playoff experience, it just seems like it went by really fast.
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.
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.
That's when I use the word frustrating, when your body breaks down or your body doesn't do the things I'm asking it to do at my age, because I'm trying to keep up with the Joneses.
The tradition you have at the University of Texas is like no other.
The reality is that my stepfather was like a father to me and watching him die from a sudden heart attack was one of the hardest things I have ever gone through.
I don't bat an eye at stuff like that. I've had my share of wins. If I worried about the games I should have won, it would probably drive me crazy. It was a fun game to pitch in.
I'd be cheating everyone here, the staff and rest of my teammates, if I wasn't able to stay on top of my work. It was almost like therapy, to come back and get in an environment I'm comfortable with.
