Quote of the day

Chicks who dig home runs aren’t the ones who appeal to me. I think there’s sexiness in infield hits because they require technique. I’d rather impress the chicks with my technique than with my brute strength. Then, every now and then, just to show I can do that, too, I might flirt a little by hitting one out.

Quote of the day

When people say nice things you take them as compliments. It’s nice, but it won’t help you win your next game. The thing I am trying to keep in mind is that relying on my past performance will not make me win my next game, it’ll only get in my way.
