"Every great batter works on the theory that the pitcher is more afraid of him than he is of the pitcher."
"I'm always amazed when a pitcher becomes angry at a hitter for hitting a home run off him. When I strike out, I don't get angry at the pitcher, I get angry at myself. I would think that if a pitcher threw up a home run ball, he should be angry at himself."
"After I hit a home run I had a habit of running the bases with my head down. I figured the pitcher already felt bad enough without me showing him up rounding the bases."
"What's unfortunate about buying a pitcher for $12 million is that he carries no warranty."
