That guy has good stuff. He throws hard and has a good slider. I was just looking for something out over the plate that I could get some good wood on, and fortunately it got in the air and Pollock was able to score easily

-- Cody Ross

Everyone in this locker room has 100 percent confidence in each other. We feel like somebody is going to come up and get the job done or somebody is going to start the inning off and get a big hit and advance on a passed ball or a stolen base or something. We have that feeling.

-- Cody Ross

I just didn't have it tonight, and that was pretty much the bottom line. I tried to battle through it but didn't have it. I was scuffling out there. I was lucky.

-- Wade Miley

From being hit in the head yesterday to today, I don’t think I would be close to normal right away. Probably take a couple of days, I think. I’m waiting for the doc to see what is going to happen.

D-Backs magic?; Martin Prado’s struggles; farm report; & other stuff |
On Wednesday night in Baltimore, the Orioles lost to the Toronto Blue Jays in 11 innings, snapping their streak of 17 consecutive wins in extra innings.

Ten reasons two fans at Marlins Park sit oddly still for Anthony Rizzo home run | Big League Stew - Yahoo! Sports
The United States is a wonderful place. You can do what you want. At least that's what it says in the directions. But if you come to a Major League Baseball game and just sit there, off by yourself, and not care about a baseball 10 feet from you, then something is wrong with you... Or you're a Marlins fan.

Ken Davidoff: Joe Girardi’s makeshift New York Yankees finding ways to win -
The Yankees are mocking the very notion of organizational depth. Of statistical analysis. Of common sense. They are to reclamation projects what Hollywood is to suck-ups.
