"It wasn't like I was devastated or thought the world was coming to an end. I know what's up ... The fans, they don't really understand. It's good for them to understand everything is going to be just fine. I had all the confidence in the world in myself. The great ones -- [Mariano] Rivera, [Trevor] Hoffman -- they go through bumps in the road. What distinguishes the great player from the average player are the ones who get out of ruts quick. That's my whole goal." -- 8.12.06, Jonathan 'Even Keel' Papelbon
