Last quote by Dave Roberts

We badly want to understand Trump, to grasp him. It might give us some sense of control, or at least an ability to predict what he will do next. But what if there's nothing to understand? What if there is no there there?feedback

Dave Roberts quotes

What day he is activated, we're not sure. But he is on his way.feedback

We know we're evenly matched. I think [the Cubs] know it as well… I think they know we're not going anywhere.feedback

Last year, in my opinion, they were the best team, but this year I think we closed the gap.feedback

It's something that will stay with you forever. But now it's time to focus on doing it all over again.feedback

They're still the reigning champions, but I think that we've closed the gap.feedback

I think (Turner) said it was on a dive, so I don't think it's a strain or anything like that. It might have been a charley horse or something like that.feedback

He's close. I think to pick our spots and use him accordingly, and when we do need him, he'll be ready. But we're not ready to say when that day will be. Sometime the end of the month makes sense.feedback

Is it good to see, inspiring? No. I don't think it's inspiring. I think it's great for the Cubs. It's great for their fans. It's been a long time coming. I think it's great for baseball. But for our players, I think it's individual. You've got to ask each guy. To be on the line for 45 minutes, to watch the ring ceremony, when it's 40 degrees, I don't know how comfortable or inspiring that will be.feedback

He's more than dependable. So yeah, you know what, he's human and he was pretty amped up tonight. You could see the velocity touched 95 [mph]. He was throwing some sliders 91. So he was amped up and feeling good so that's a good thing. But it's going to happen that he will make mistakes and those guys took advantage of it.feedback

Obviously, he'd like to start off a little hotter but tomorrow he could have a couple of hits and we're talking about how he's off to a good start to the season.feedback

Throughout spring training, his start in Anaheim (before Opening Day), there was nothing. And so I don't know if it was a little deviation in his pregame (routine). The pitch count has been there so it's not a pitch-count thing. So we really don't know but we're trying to dig into the cause.feedback

He's emotional and we love that about him and he cares. But that's a game you just can't get thrown out of.feedback

It's more credit now that he's started off this series well in the sense that they're pitching him tough. He's swinging at strikes and taking balls. We look for him to sustain this.feedback

The thing with Yasiel is, early on in his career, the league didn't know how to approach him. He was hitting a lot of balls out over, and the league was learning from him, and the last couple of years, you see the league has adjusted. He's had to make those adjustments as well. Right now, he's being disciplined with his approach and continues to work through mechanics.feedback

He is expecting to go out there and throw a shutout every time he takes the mound. I don't know what the correlation is to No. 1s that they don't typically get that run support, and obviously they are facing No. 1s as well, if it lines up. But for Clayton it's nice. But for our guys on the offensive side, it shouldn't matter who's pitching. You go out there and executive a gameplan and the hitting guys had a great gameplan for our offense today.feedback

Everyone in that clubhouse wants to win a championship. You look at our offseason, what the front office, and the players returning as free agents, what they sacrificed to be in that clubhouse shows a lot of unselfishness. I think ... on into the season, [unselfishness] is what it is going to take from each player.feedback

For a couple of days we felt he was out of the woods, but then this morning he was in there and was ready to go, but he just didn't loosen up.feedback

He's special, not only in the ability to put the bat on the ball, but just the head and the heartbeat. All that stuff just plays to a veteran. Then you mix in the skill set. There is really nothing, to me, that Corey can't do.feedback

It's incredible, the different directions that our conversations in the suite go.feedback

Every manager would like their starter to go complete-game shutout, but I think that there's a certain point in the game where the starting pitcher is not being as effective, and you have other options. When you look at analytics or data, those are facts. So where certain options have shown better, then as manager it only makes sense to trust that information as well as your eyes.feedback

He had the psyche, the preparedness obviously is never in question, and it's just one of those nights that they took advantage of some mistakes.feedback

I think that the first thing I saw is the Cubs hitters, they had a great game plan tonight. And there was a couple mistake sliders that they took advantage of. But they were running counts, they used the whole field, and there was traffic all night for Clayton. And he gave it everything he had, but when they did – when he did make a mistake, they made him pay.feedback

We have asked a lot of Clayton all year long, so, again, it's just more of you got to give those hitters credit.feedback

Our confidence hasn't wavered. This series certainly isn't over.feedback

You've got to brush off and get ready for tomorrow.feedback

I thought we put ourselves in a position to get to Lackey, but he escaped.feedback

With Richie, it's an inning-by-inning thing, so we'll just keep our fingers crossed. Because all things being equal, the blister holds, I really, really like our chances.feedback

I think that you couldn't have scripted it any better. And it was just another fun ballgame.feedback

I trust Joe, I've trusted him all year long, he's been great for us. Left a pitch up. ... It just didn't work out.feedback

You got to walk Heyward with the open base.feedback

It's hard to love the matchups against Chapman, anyway.feedback

It's just more of just getting assurance that he feels good physically, which he does, and so it's one of those things, obviously, when you get a chance for Clayton to pitch Games 2 and potentially 6, that's a good thing for us. And, yeah, it's full go.feedback

I kind of put Theo and Jed together and they're good friends of mine, and there's a lot of, a little bit of banter, but obviously I've got the ultimate respect for those guys and they really helped me get a ring.feedback

He's going to go out there and get a lift in and throw and run and do what he does. So, obviously, we're not prepared to make that decision yet, but he's tracking to start when we all think.feedback

Looking him in the eye, I felt good about it, and the training staff gave the OK, so it's only fitting for Clayton to get the last out right there.feedback

These are conversations that me, the front office, we have daily, about just kind of forward-thinking, being open-minded to how you can use guys in certain roles. And today was a prime example.feedback

Clayton came to me in the seventh, and said that he had an inning if I needed it.feedback

If anyone gives up on this team, they haven't seen us play a whole lot this year, and it starts with what Clayton did – short rest and leaving it all out there. Everyone fed off that.feedback

That's a variable that is kind of start to start, and we'll see how he is.feedback

Well, I think Dusty is going to try. Yeah, it does, and I think that there's a little bit of banter with ... home plate umpires. But I think that you might see it from both sides of the dugout this series.feedback

When he's on the bases, he creates tension. He turns doubles into triples, singles into doubles.feedback

To be a part of what he's done in his last game, I'll give him a little salute at some point.feedback

Today wasn't a good day for the quality of at-bats. Some with the lack of familiarity (with Blach), but even with that I think we gave away a lot of at-bats.feedback

It was a work in progress all year. We're going to enjoy it.feedback

For Clayton to be back on the mound, I think that's a win for us. Fernandez was good, but the No. 1 thing was Clayton got out of this feeling pretty well. We didn't expect him to be in midseason form anyway.feedback

I think in some weird way, it does. They really wanted this game to salvage the series. I think there's a little something that salvages it for us in a strange way.feedback

He's about ready to pick up a baseball. Obviously we don't know how much we can build him up, but it's encouraging that Ryu wants to get back in in any capacity he can.feedback

It feels much better from this side. Yeah, I saw 'em. I remember.feedback
