"Certain things, I think, can go too far. To me, the clap at home plate, he was excited, he hit a home run, so, second of the year. Good for him." -- Salty on Showboat Cervelli

"16 men LOB???? That's a good formula for trying to beat the Yankees. And what the hell is D. McDonald doing in the lineup? Yeah, yeah, I get the the lefty/righty matchup, but I'm sorry, he CAN'T HIT. I'd rather take my chances with Reddick. He couldn't have done any worse. Didn't seem like anyone was playing with any sense of urgency. Perhaps they don't understand the math...that the loss tonight means they have a half game lead. They were playing like they were up by 10 games. Pretty lame effort all around tonight..." -- Mark, postgame reaction
