The Week in Quotes

December 15-January 4

by Dennis Cleary

GRAB BAG

"I'm a little frustrated about our pitching situation right now. We're still going to be pretty good on the field, but our pitching staff is up in the air, and everybody knows you can't win without pitching."
-- Jim Leyland, Marlins manager

"I'm an independent person. After this season, I'm a free agent. If I'm not signed, I can't sell myself short by not exploring free agency."
-- Mike Piazza

"Some of these signings defy description."
-- George Steinbrenner, Yankees owner

"Hal [Morris] is a proven left-handed hitter who fills the void for us at the designated hitter slot."
-- Herk Robinson, Royals GM

"I'm looking forward to getting back to my whole game of baseball -- back to the National League, back to stealing, back to playing good defense and just trying to be an all-around ballplayer."
-- Marquis Grissom

"[Kevin] Brown is going to make a huge impact on this club. He could help take the starting rotation to a different level. The acquisition of Brown shows the commitment that ownership has toward baseball in San Diego."
-- Kevin Towers, Padres GM

"In my opinion, Kevin Brown is the type of pitcher who can make a difference in the NL West race."
-- Dave Dombrowski, Marlins GM

"One thing I've learned is that it's better to trade a guy a year too early than a year too late."
-- Sal Bando, Brewers GM

"If I had my wish, I would have already been traded by now."
-- Randy Johnson

"I've done about everything you can do and I've done it at a big-league level."
-- Darren Holmes
