Mostly Real Quotes

"I hope we're panicking a little bit. I think panic's a good thing to a certain extent. It's obvious we've got five weeks or whatever it is, too. So, there's a sense of urgency. Maybe that's better to say than panic. I feel like we've got to start playing like that. Not to say we haven't, but it's definitely time to start thinking that way." - Clayton Kershaw

"Honestly, I just found that out today. It feels good to be a part of that. I'm just happy and blessed and want to thank all my teammates and coaches for being there for me this season. It's been a great day." - Isan Diaz

"When you have success against a team, you try to stick with what you did before. I definitely had confidence today." - Chase Anderson

"Don't forget about us." - Padres
