When I was with the Giants, I played for Dusty Baker, and I love Dusty to death. I think he's a great manager and great person, but he platooned me. His reasoning was to get everybody in the lineup. It wasn't that I couldn't play every day.
I love Chicago. I love Wrigley Field.
Umpires are supposed to be non-confrontational - they're supposed to uphold the peace on the baseball field.
I'm never going to criticize any umpires or anything, because they're a big part of the game.
When a guy 275 pounds snaps, look out.
In my career, I finished in second place six times. I played on teams that were in it to the very end. It's frustrating.
