Buehrle on the no-hit bet ($10,000?) he had with Garland:
"We had a bet going. I may not collect from him. We're still a little off on the money-wise. He said it's a little lower than I thought it was. I told him I'm probably not going to collect form him."Whalen has a lot more quotes from Mark.
"At least in the World Series, you can jump on the pitcher and get a good picture. But I didn't know what to do with this one. I didn't want to jump on him because I didn't want to hurt him with a lot of the season to go."
If BA doesn't get 450-500 at bats this season, Kenny would like him to go to winter ball to make up the lost time. BA said yesterday that he has difficulty imagining himself playing winter ball with last years' virus experience but will see how things going and put off any decisions until September. For now he's focused on his role trying not to feel as an outsider:
"Honestly, whether they are still high on me or down on me, it doesn't affect me either way. It's no disrespect to them, but I just don't care. They have control and dictate when and where I play. If things don't work out here, they can work out somewhere else. I'm not saying I want to leave, but at the same time, it's like I'm still young. I'm going to let this year play out and whatever they want to do, they can do. They can trade me, send me down, keep me, platoon me, that's their choice. I have no hard feelings whatever they want to do."
