Cooper on Mike MacDougal and Matt Thornton:
"Frustrated, not baffled ... frustrated by it. To a degree, they both connect to each other. If one is going good, the other can climb in there, and we just never had them both going good at the same time."BTW, Floyd will make Danks remaining starts, while Lance Broadway and Heath Phillips will remain in the bullpen and won't make any starts.
Ozzie to Heath Phillips on Tuesday night's game:
"I said, 'I don't care what you do. Don't make me come back. The fans are getting tired of seeing me on the field. After the game I said: 'Thank you.' It's embarrassing to keep going back out there."
