Mark Buehrle Quotes

Being a starting pitcher, you want to be a 20-game winner. Every year you come into spring training hoping to get to that part. I've always said if I win five games and the team wins 90 percent of my starts, that's all I can hope for, give my team the best chance to win.

I think I was more nervous yesterday sitting on the bench. Obviously, when I woke up this morning I was really nervous. Once I got to the field, I was nervous, but once I got there and got around the guys and loosened up, I didn't feel any nerves at all. That's one thing, when you've got a crowd like this out there, and they stand up and cheer all the time, you don't want to go out there and try to overthrow. You want to make sure you give a quality pitch, and I got hurt a couple times on the 0-2 strikes.

I like to get out in the woods as much as I can to get my mind away from baseball and kind of get away from everything. It's nice to get out there and listen to everything, the wildlife and the smells.

I've heard rumors, so it's not just me saying this, ... Something's going on because they hit so good at home. The way they hit here, you'd have to raise an eyebrow to figure something's going on. Look at the stats. I'm not just making this up.

Toughest [lineup] I've faced. Hopefully, if it comes down to the playoffs, I can get my revenge.

[Williams] is afraid I'm going to get hurt. He said there's no fine, but if I do it again, there will be a fine. It's only once in a blue moon you get to do that anyway, so it's not like it's an everyday thing they're taking away from us. I'd do it if there was no one in here. I did it when I was a little kid in my backyard during the summertime.

He just said that I had bad technique and I was going to get hurt. There's no fine. If I do it again, there will be a fine.

I would do it if there was no one in here. It's more fun for me. I used to do it when I was a little kid, in the back yard in the summertime. I would go out there all day without anyone in the stands.

I think we have at least two guys on this staff that can win 20 games this year with the team we have, the offense. Like I've said before, it does take a lot of luck. There's a lot that has to happen. But I think it's not just two that can win 20 games on this staff. There might be three or more that can do it.

To have somebody out in center field or whatever they're doing, that's cheating.

Actually, I got out in the woods and kind of cleared my mind,

Ever since the All-Star break, it seems like I haven't had too many good games. It's frustrating. We've still got six games with Cleveland. And the way that they're playing, they could sweep us right now. If we keep on playing like we're playing, we're not going to the playoffs. We'll be home on Oct. 3.

I think people know what the Red Sox did to the Yankees last year, and with that lineup, we can't slow down.

I really can't say I had playoff experience. Now being in the majors five years consecutively (as a starter), I think just being out there on the mound and being in pressure situations help.

You don't want to listen to what a lot of other people think about him. People have bad times in their lives and in their careers and make some wrong choices. And maybe he did something over there that they didn't like, but over here, he would have gotten away with it because we look at him differently. He was a perfect fit for us.

You listen to people say that once they leave here, Ozzie is like no other manager they ever played for. Everyone that comes over here, we say, 'Hey, you're going to have a fun time playing for Ozzie.' They usually say, 'Yeah, that's what I heard.' I don't know if it gets around the league or what, but people want to come over here and play for him.

To be honest, this was probably one of the most nervous games I've ever pitched in. Coming off last year, the crowd was really into it. The guys on the other club have been kind of mouthing off, talking about how they were a better team than us. So I really wanted us to come out and do just what we did.
