The Week in Quotes

October 22-28

by Derek Zumsteg

WORLD SERIES

"I feel real good I didn't throw a lot of pitches tonight. If I have to come back on three days' rest, I'll be ready."
--Curt Schilling, Diamondbacks pitcher, on his seven-inning start in Game One

"A lot of my moves worked--for the other team."
--Joe Torre, Yankees manager, on Game One

"My first World Series? Better than anything I could have expected, better even than sex, but I'm lousy at that."
--Mark Grace, Diamondbacks infielder

"He was terrific. He lived up to what he's supposed to be. The axiom has never changed--good pitching stops good hitting. And that's what we've seen."
--Torre, on Randy Johnson's Game Two performance

"I think the Good Lord is a Yankee."
--Mariano Rivera, Yankee pitcher, on his team's years of post-season success

ALCS

"You have to dismiss it. Maybe you hope they got tired today, they won't be as spry tomorrow."
--Torre, after the Mariners beat the Yankees 14-3 in Game 3 of the ALCS

"Today they mean nothing, period. Doesn't matter if you won 85 to get in the playoffs or 185 to get in the playoffs. It's how you finish."
--Aaron Sele, Mariners pitcher, on the Mariners' 116 regular season wins

POST-SEASON

"We didn't produce as much as we felt we were going to as a team and in some individual cases. It's not laying blame for a poor offensive season at Merv [Rettenmund]'s feet. That's not all a hitting coach. The players have to perform. But we can't change all 25 hitters."
--John Schuerholz, Braves general manager, on firing hitting coach Rettenmund

"We did some research and found that if we keep cutting trees and not planting them, we're going to run out of forest. It can be devastating. We just want to start something, and maybe other people can follow us."
--Stan Javier, Mariners outfielder, on his post-retirement plans in the Dominican Republic
