Von Hayes Quotes

Lloyd's been battling himself the last few days. He came into the office a few days ago just talking, trying to get him to think in simple terms ... not try to do too much. Pick somebody out in the infield and try to hit it as hard as you can at that person. He made a great adjustment (Friday) and did a great job for us.

Everything looked normal for him, his fastball velocity, everything was good. He just lacked location. He had trouble getting the ball on the inner half. He's the type of pitcher that has to establish inside to those right-handers and he was having trouble with it. He just wasn't sharp. That's kind of expected when you miss a week or two of competition.

I like what I saw. He came in with 100 RBIs, and you expect a little bit of a letdown at the next level, but Danny didn't miss a beat. He came out swinging the bat and he helped us win the championship. He was very composed, very impressive. He's got a lot of heart and a very bright future.

With Suzuki, we should have quicker games because we don't have to hold the runners on as much as we used to. Kurt's going to give us something behind the plate that we didn't see last year. That's not taking anything away from the people we've had but times don't lie. His times throwing to second base are consistently around 1.9 to 1.92 (seconds).

He walked into my office yesterday after San Antonio's game and said his passion is elsewhere, so he decided to retire. We wish him well.

He's pretty much solid in those situations. Tonight you've got to turn the page and know that next time he comes out he's going to get the job done.

We need to work through it and get back on course. I definitely feel like we're an above-average team, but the way we've played the last two nights we're very mediocre. These guys should look in the mirror and see themselves as not a first place team.

We left a ton of runners on base. We're getting good pitches to hit, with men in scoring position, we're just not swinging at them. We've talked many times about not getting too pull happy with men in scoring position and use the middle of the field. Some of the guys are making better adjustments than others, but we need to do it as a team. Just keep working on it is all we can do.

He's added body strength and his fastball has a little more life in it which sets up all his other pitches. He's got a tremendous arsenal. Tonight he pitched well. I can't wait until he gets to 90-100 pitch counts because right now we're using too many people.
