HOUSTON - MAY 05: Philip Humber #59 of the Houston Astros pitches in the first inning against the Detroit Tigers at Minute Maid Park on May 5, 2013 in Houston, Texas.
I have a tremendous amount of respect for Philip Humber for the way he carried himself, the way he handled himself and even the way he handled being moved from the rotation to the bullpen ... Never once did this man point the finger at anybody else, never once did he give an excuse. He stood there and took the questions and said, 'I'm giving everything I have and it's not working out.' For that, I commend him and respect him.
Obviously that one is on me ... I didn't execute some pitches I needed to execute, and they made me pay for it.More quotes »
