Ozzie on yesterday's BMac:
"You've got to throw strikes. I don't care how tough you think you are, if you're not throwing strikes on this level you're going to get hit and that happened to Mac. He's not a power pitcher. He has got command."
First right-handed bat off the bench? Here's Ozzie:
"Josh Fields, he will be the first right-handed hitter to come off the bench. Right now [Joe] Crede is good enough to play, but if we need a pinch-runner for Crede, I have a legit third baseman to replace him."
By the way, what did Ozzie say to Sean Tracey, the 5th reliever he used on the 9th inning yesterday:
"Throw the ball in the middle of the plate, I want to go to California right now. It?s 60 degrees here and I?m freezing my tail off. I?m tired of the fans screaming at me ? just get the thing over with."
