Mostly Real Quotes

"Yes, they approached me in the off-season, but I wasn't interested in becoming President." - Paul Goldschmidt

"It wasn't a dive, it was more kind of [on] the pop-up, I felt something. I've done it before, so I kind of didn't have a freak-out. I knew what happened. Lot of frustration." - A.J. Pollock

"I haven't seen a mistake in the field yet all the times I've watched, and it seems we score at least five runs a game and the pitching staff's better than it was last year. So all the good things that were going on last year are still going on and then the parts that needed improvement have been improved." - Zack Greinke

"Aggressive, and I would say family, very family oriented. These guys take care of each other. I think this is an aggressive team." - Chip Hale
