If you don’t second-guess yourself, then you are not trying to get better.
– Don Mattingly
The players get no respect around here. They give you money, that’s it, not respect. We get constantly dogged and players from other teams love to see that. That’s why nobody wants to play here.
I’m not afraid of criticism or what somebody may think.
When I write a note, it sticks in my head differently.
Nobody can see into the future. Nobody knows what going to go on.
Good teams I played on… just the tone that they play with, the energy they play with, how they go about it. When you get it going the right way, you get everyone going in the same direction and it’s a powerful thing.

I have had many occasions this year where I questioned and second-guessed my decision in a game, but it comes down to learning from mistakes and being accountable for what you did right or did wrong.
I don’t know what to say other than you’re really honored another team is looking at you.
I’d like to say this was our worst game. Unfortunately, I can’t.
We all have the temptation to be backseat drivers when it comes to decisions that don’t work out the way we want.
I want to be on the field. It’s a better place to talk to the guys. It’s a relaxed atmosphere. You want to make sure you know what’s going on, not just with the hitters.
On the playing side, a lot of guys I played under were pretty good managers.
I’m always writing at night – things I would change, things I would do differently. When I write a note, it sticks in my head differently.
