Dave Roberts quotes
It's not an elimination game.
You've got to brush off and get ready for tomorrow.
I thought we put ourselves in a position to get to Lackey, but he escaped.
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.
I think that you couldn't have scripted it any better. And it was just another fun ballgame.
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.
You got to walk Heyward with the open base.
It's hard to love the matchups against Chapman, anyway.
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.
And, yeah, it's full go.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Clayton came to me in the seventh, and said that he had an inning if I needed it.
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.
That's a variable that is kind of start to start, and we'll see how he is.
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.
When he's on the bases, he creates tension. He turns doubles into triples, singles into doubles.
To be a part of what he's done in his last game, I'll give him a little salute at some point.
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.
It was a work in progress all year. We're going to enjoy it.
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.
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.
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.
I don't even know if he showered.
It feels much better from this side. Yeah, I saw 'em. I remember.
It couldn't have been scripted any better.
