There are big expectations put on all of us, but it's not going to change the way we play.
We were trying to get a good lead and we just kept pouring it on.
We'll settle on a number (today) but we're still negotiating the length of the deal.
We have a problem in our society when we've got this number of individuals that continue to consume large amounts of alcohol and then lose control of their common senses and good judgment and act out in these ways,
When to back up and when to move in.
Several students have called and said, 'I have a video, do you want it?'
Nobody wants to be embarrassed. Those guys have great stuff, and they're very capable of embarrassing all nine hitters. We step our game up and concentrate a little bit harder, and things have worked out.
I was the first of the group to get up here. I played with a lot of these guys in the minors. So, I can relate to them.
If we get off to a good start this year, who knows what can happen down the stretch. Just like the White Sox last year got off to a good start and kept a good start all the way through the season through the World Series. That is what we are looking to do.
I am embracing being in the lineup, no matter how I get in there.
I feel pretty good up there. It's fun right now. Everybody on the team is swinging the bat well. We always knew we could get on a roll like this, and, hopefully, here we go.
I get close every day. Maybe one day I'll get it. But I'm content with three hits. It's fun right now.
He got me. That was a big play.
There aren't a lot of guys in the league who can bring a whole dugout to the top steps. He's definitely one of those guys. He's got a tremendous ceiling -- that's all I can say.
When he comes back, I'll start moving around if need be.
Our goal really is to create what we're calling the veteran roll call. We want to have all the names of those who served in Vietnam as accurately as possible.
Owner input would be very useful -- the sooner the better, and hopefully baseball understands that.
States have a critical role and we are asking states to plan to the greatest level of detail to prepare for a pandemic and distribution of vaccines.
It definitely adds to the excitement. We're all excited about this opportunity. We haven't had it here in so long. I feel great for Geoff Jenkins and Ben Sheets after all the hard times, and to finally have a chance for a winning season and go home happy for a change.
I think it will be interesting to see what input the new owner has in the design.
Maybe one day I'll get it, but right now I'm content with getting three hits. It's fun right now. Everybody on the team is swinging the bats well and it's just fun. I always said we were going to get on a roll like this, and here we go.
I'm happy for a lot of people who are faced with rising costs for just about everything,
That was the best 0-3 team I've seen. They're a 4-A team, and we're a little ol' 2-A team.
We just always find ways to figure the other teams aces out; Clemens, Carpenter, Beckett. We play well against all of them. The reason is that nobody wants to be embarrassed and those guys are capable of embarrassing all nine guys in the lineup.
We have to see what the optimal dosing will be. It all depends on what the research shows.
We believe the summit was successful in focusing community attention on the many aspects of the housing problem. But we know it will be a true success only if we're able to keep the momentum going.
We know it's incomplete. We know there is a disparity (with the World War II veterans list) and we want to correct it.
We have less than 1,200 on the list.
Tomorrow I'm going to face Roy Oswalt, and I can't think about the five hits I got today, because he's a really good pitcher.
We're doing what everybody expected us to do now. When it all comes together, we're a dangerous team.
Traditionally, around the world, tea is planted on hillsides. We're flat as a pancake, but we have sandy soil and ditches next to each field so the water drains away. The plants have been here in South Carolina for over 100 years and they're happy here.
We're just doing what everybody expected us to do, and what we feel like we can do. And when it all comes together, we're a dangerous team. We're definitely a team to be reckoned with in the National League Central.
We over-communicate the fees that will be charged and what they cover. Guests at a luxury resort should not feel abused by nickel-and-dime charges.
(With) 500 at-bats, you're an everyday player, and I got that last year. So that proves I'm an everyday player ? but it's just not at the same position right now.
With any type of program like that, delays are absolutely possible, and when they happen, they're not unexpected.
We've got a lot of depth ? and a lot of talent, a lot of young talent, and got good veteran leadership. Like I said, we're hoping to pull it together and play into October.
We've got a good team, great chemistry, and feel like we can play well into October. But it starts on the third against the Pirates. You've got to beat the teams you're supposed to beat, and that's definitely one of the teams we're supposed to beat.
Bigelow could get it in every supermarket in America, but the problem is we have to have enough to provide. We don't want to get into a situation where the supermarkets are saying send us more tea and we say we haven't got it.
As soon as I got into the dugout some of the guys came up and told me I'm the answer to a trivia question. It's a special memory.
There's only a couple of guys doing what I'm doing, so (we) take pride in what we're doing. There's a lot of guys getting groomed to be that type of player in the minors now, so there's definitely going to be a position on every team for a guy like us.
There's no way to speculate on a number. We just don't do that.
It would be nice to get a chance to have some security, if things go well in negotiations.
The older the tea, the more harsh and bitter it becomes. And imported teas can be many, many months old before the consumer gets a chance to buy it off the shelf, ... Our advantage is that we can get our tea from the field to the customer within a month.
As a historical society, we knew we had to preserve history, but now we have to pursue it, too.
That's just the tippy top of an iceberg that's huge underneath.
There was no numerical quota. While the memo may come across that way, that was absolutely not the case.
There were a lot of areas that we would've liked to work, but the areas just weren't safe. Like one of the construction workers said, it only takes one brick to fall.
They're almost like coaches to us because they've been around the game so much.
It seems like everybody's starting to swing the bats well at the same time.
It was put on a temporary hold while we have been fixing those problems.
It's an honor, obviously, to represent your country. But to get to play with some of the best players in the world would have been great.
It's rare a team has a Cinderella year where they have a lot of losing seasons and then all of a sudden make it to the playoffs, unless you can go out and buy a bunch of talent. For us, that's one of our stepping stones. We want to get to .500 and keep moving from there.
It teaches them discipline and physical training. It can be very competitive, but I'm not having them in it for the competitive side.
It was just his day. And there's nothing we could do about it.
After the third one went out, we got excited in the dugout. And No. 4 and 5, it was just unbelievable.
I'm OK with it. It's just the situation I'm in right now. I'll make the best of it and see what happens.
I'm comfortable. It's just making some plays, analyzing situations and knowing where to throw the ball.
In years past if one guy didn't get it done the rest of the inning would get away. Now we have guys one through nine that can get it done, ... There are still some games left to do some damage and maybe get that wild card.
The guy is incredible. He might be the fastest guy in baseball.
