"I'm extremely pissed off. I don't want to have my whole year ruined by a couple of bad starts here at the end."

"We think here, we don't react to situations. So we're just going to go to sleep, and whenever we make a decision -- if we do -- believe me, you guys will find out.

We're not going to make a decision based on the poor outing he had today."
(Manny Acta, via Washington Post, 9/6/2008)
