Mostly Real Quotes

"When you're going good you have to continue to compete. Don't give up at-bats. You have (Paul) Goldschmidt there, end up walking him, then give up a cheap hit then a homer -- stuff happened that quick." - Kenley Jansen on his outing

"He did a good job, as he usually does. Throws a lot strikes, doesn't make many mistakes so I had a great opportunity there in the fifth or sixth inning and wasn't able to come through. I would have liked to get on to see what could have happened there. Unfortunately wasn't able to do that." - Paul Goldschmidt on Zack Greinke

"You've got guys out there battling to the last out and that's what you want." - Jarrod Saltellemwachawant on the Diamondbacks mental toughness

"HA!  Fooled you.  They're all real." - Xipooo
