"You throw one up and in and at 3-0 you come at me. I donít really care what theyíre trying to do over there, but I just took my base and let them know I didnít appreciate it. I donít need to get thrown out. I realize my importance to my team. It didnít hurt anyways. I should have stolen two bases off of him." -- Jacoby Wan Kenobi

"Whenever your team gives you a four-run lead you're supposed to come out a lot better than that. Went out there with a game plan of throwing strikes, let them put the ball in play and get outs. Walked the first guy. All the contact that they made ó they hit the ball hard and it wasnít at any of our players in the field. I have to do a lot better job than that." -- Clay 'Captain Obvious' Buchholz

"The light goes on for most guys, or you click and figure it out, or itís something you never get. Heís not going to be a 1, thatís just not going to happen. Itís not part of his makeup." -- Curt Schilling crushes Clay on WEEI
