    • QUOTES (3)

      • New York Third Baseman Scott Brosius: It's fun this time of year. This is what you want to play for. You can try to analyze things, but you just go out there and play.

      • New York Starter Orlando Hernandez: (speaking through an interpreter) With no disrespect to the great pitcher that is Greg Maddux, I thought one run was not going to be enough to win the game. I always have the confidence that my team would come through for me.

      • (on New York starter Orlando Hernandez)
        Atlanta Starter Greg Maddux: His ball mved to wherever he wanted it to. After my second at-bat tonight, just watching his stuff at the plate, I knew we weren't going to score again off him.
