"He could easily have five or six wins instead of six or seven losses.  It's been a learning experience for him. He's been able to build up some confidence here and hopefully that can continue on when we get to spring training so it can make for some really good competition." - Mike Harkey

"I would love to do that in the future, but also I know I have a lot to learn. We'll see how it goes. That's going to be a big challenge for me in winter ball now. That's going to be a good start." - Henry Blanco on Managing

That was one of the things that tipped the scales toward Arizona, as the Diamondbacks and Cougars inked a new two-year agreement Wednesday.
