Maybe if they had given South Africa a game at that stadium in Arizona, I think it would've been nice for them. It would've been a good experience for them, because they're kind of a young team.

Even in the minors or at the All-Star game, you're still part of the Yankees. It's going to seem weird to put on another uniform and play for another team. It's a new situation for me but I'm looking forward to it.

If we beat them, it still doesn't make up for what happened last year. They've got great defense and a bullpen that's one of the best. They do all the little things. I think they're a pest for everybody. Yeah, we've had some rough elimination games there. You remember them, but you don't really think about them while you're playing. We've been eliminated in other places.
