Ozzie when asked, yesterday, if the team can make a run:
"You ask those [players], and we're a fighter that's still standing, but we can't get knocked down once. We have to be up for two months. That's what I expect. That's what I want. But we continue like [the 11-game road trip], and sorry guys, it ain't going to happen."
"Honestly, I don't think we've been attacking the game. We've been sitting back and letting things happen to us instead of going out and making them happen. Once you start heading the way we've headed, and things aren't going your way, or you do the right things and they still don't go your way, it's tough to grind it out. We just have to let it go and prepare for the next day."
