BALTIMORE, MD - MAY 17: Chris Dickerson #36 of the Baltimore Orioles celebrates with Matt Wieters #32 after hitting a home run in the eighth inning against the Tampa Bay Rays at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on May 17, 2013 in Baltimore, Maryland.
It's almost like we prefer to play from behind ... As soon as it got to 6-3, we knew it was a different ballgame.
You never feel like you are going to stay in trouble long. Someone is going to come out of this awesome bullpen and give us a strong performance. This whole bullpen has been unbelievable…It’s truly incredible. The bullpen has been a huge lift for us when things have gotten a little bit hairy they can come in and shut the door. It’s a huge luxury. And they’ve been doing an incredible job.
You're constantly competing every day in spring training in hopes of earning that spot ... When it came down to that last day, it was crushing, but Buck and I talked about it and he said not to be too down about it because you could be back at any time. And he was right.More quotes »
