“This off season there has been too much violence, too much pain. None here are without sin. But I have an honorable compromise. Just show up to fan fest. Give into the fandom, buy a beer, line up for autographs, and bring the whole family, and I’ll spare your lives. Just show up to fan fest; I will give you safe passage to opening day. Just show up to fan fest and there will be an end to the horrors of the off season.”

“I’m honored that the ownership, team and front office felt that I’m the right person to lead this team from the dugout level,” Lovullo said. “I’m humbled by the offer and the extension. It offers a little bit of stability and in this game that’s always what you’re searching for. It gives us an opportunity to continue to press on with our concepts over these future years until we hopefully win a world championship.”
