I think we'll be better than last year because we have more talented runners.

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).

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.

I expect so much out of her. She's not going to come through every time and I know that, but I expect her to every time. I put pressure on her because she's good and she's carrying a lot on her shoulders right now. Catcher is a pretty demanding position in my mind and I stay on her pretty hard, and putting her in the three hole, when we have runners in scoring position I expect her to drive them in every time.

We do have quite a few boys. I am happy with the number we did get this year. We have a lot of new runners and a lot of young runners.

We were a little stiff. We made some errors and couldn't seem to get runners on base.
Wendy Massey

We hit the ball hard in that game, it just didn't drop. We hit it hard at people and they made some great plays. We didn't make the adjustments at the plate. We also had runners in scoring position, we just didn't execute.

This was our biggest area of improvement from last year. The depth of runners we have at the springs shows in our relays.
Todd Spanier
#Runners

I think we really used each other to set the pace and worked off each other. It really benefits us that all of our runners run close to each other.
Travis Boccher

We're going to throw some people into some different events. We might try Michael in the 400, and we might switch our distance runners around a little bit. We're looking to qualify as many people as we can for the Meet of Champions later this month. This week and next week will be a great opportunity to do that.
Tim Conley

We came back strong after 'Church' went out. She has some big shoes to fill and that was tough, and Gabby got us out of some tough innings where we had runners on second and third. Our defense picked it up a lot and we got the big hits when we needed them.

[Although the 1,315 yards he produced in 2004 would satisfy many NFL runners, the total disappointed Portis, who failed to post a third straight 1,500-yard season, scored only five rushing touchdowns, and finished with career lows in most major categories.] Everything wasn't as peaches and cream as it was where he left [Denver], ... I'm pretty sure just having that under his belt now he knows what to expect.

[ When Ryan Franklin worked a full count on Adam Kennedy with runners on first and third in the sixth inning on Saturday, it was a situation in which he usually would challenge with a fastball. Instead, he threw a change, and got Kennedy to roll over it for an easy ground-ball out.] I've decided I'm not going to be too proud to go soft when there are men on, ... When there's no one on base, I'll go right after them as I usually do.

We're more organized this year. Last year we didn't know who was the head coach until the last minute. This year we've had more time to prepare. I hope all the runners have a lot more fundamentals and more <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> training.

Last year she ran 16:59 here. She ran faster here than last year and last week. It's a good time on this course and she continued to show that she is one of the better runners in southwestern Indiana.

It's been the same song, same verse all year long we don't hit the ball when we need too. We just didn't do it. We had the opportunities with runners in scoring position but we don't get it done. We are going get to work tomorrow. We are going to get after it and we aren't going to quit.

I thought our bullpen competed today. I like the way our bullpen came out today behind and instead of letting it compound, they stopped it. We brought guys in with runners in scoring position and they got us out of it and that's how we won the game.
Gary McClure

I thought we did the little things particularly well in the bottom of the fifth. What stood out was our ability to move the runners either with sacrifice flies, bunts, or stolen bases.
Doug Ferguson

They can beat you up around the sides or Charlie (Hodgson) can put the ball in behind you or launch runners, and they have pace out wide.

They're both power runners. Obviously, Brown's a lot taller than Henry.

We had a bunch of young, inexperienced runners that really embraced the tradition of excellence in Fremont High cross country. With the first meet behind us, we have a clearer sense of what we need to do to reach our team goals for the season.

Those two have been setting the pace the whole year so far. We're a pretty deep team, but those two have been clearly out front. After them is a group of five, six, seven runners who are doing well.

Refiners are exhausted, like runners in mid-marathon. They've been pushing very hard since last year. As a practical matter, these things have limits. If you push too hard, capacity drops.

We chip away and chip away. That's just the way we play. We keep putting runners on and keep putting pressure on people.
Chone Figgins

I was battling that at-bat. I had two strikes and some runners on base. I was just trying to hit the ball hard somewhere.
Chris Aguila

Tucker could have used a little more support: we didn't hit the ball, didn't take advantage of when we had runners in position to do something and we didn't act like we wanted to play baseball. Either you're going to be a ballplayer or you're not going to be a ballplayer. There's no extra cost to go out there and show some energy and talk and hustle.

I wanted to finish it up. Getting the two runners on, it was a good time to let [Valverde] come in and get his work in. I knew it was probably time. I really wanted to finish the game and get the CG, but didn't happen. I'll get it.

Anytime you get runners on base through walks, errors or whatever, things can happen. The bottom of our lineup really came through.
