You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the damn plate and five the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all.
On my tombstone just write, 'The sorest loser that ever lived.'
Nobody likes to hear it, because it's dull, but the reason you win or lose is darn near always the same - pitching.
The key to winning baseball games is pitching, fundamentals, and three run homers.
No one's gonna give a damn in July if you lost a game in March.
