I'm pleased that he made that decision. Obviously, I'd love to have him as a (Team USA) teammate because he's dominant and a competitor. But I think he's taking the right approach and looking at the big picture.
It never feels good, but I've had a couple of heartbreakers where I could have won the game, but instead ended the season. You learn from that.

I would think about it. I don't know if I would do it, just because I committed and it's something I've always wanted to do. I would just play that much harder to get those at-bats. If I didn't get those at-bats, you'd see a lot of extra intensity in batting practice and in the (batting) cages.
I didn't know that; I'm glad you didn't tell me before the game. I'm glad we could avoid that from being a hot topic in the morning.
Any win is important nowadays. Obviously, Philly has been playing well and their score was posted on the scoreboard before we started. They lost and we knew we had a golden opportunity to gain a game. We went out and did it. So it's two more off the magic number, whatever it is. It's probably 100. But nonetheless, it's another day in the books and we gained a game.
He's far and away, I think, the MVP of this league.
I have confidence in whoever goes out there. Even when Kolbie was struggling at the beginning of the season, I always felt like his last outing would be the one when he turned it around. It took him being demoted and he's figured it out. He's getting key outs. Reitsma will do the same.
This is something I've always wanted to do. It's always something that appealed to me and something I've never been able to do.
I think the legacy is what it is. We've won 14 straight (division titles). We know how special that is. We're going to keep doing our thing whether we win or lose in the postseason. It's not going to change the fact that we've won 14 straight division titles.
