    • QUOTES (3)

      • Florida Pitching Coach Larry Rothschild: Around the seventh inning I started to think it was going to be a classic, maybe go to extra innings. The tension was there with every pitch. When you get to the seventh game of a World Series, whatever people have said about it before doesn't mean anything.

      • (responding to rumors that he may retire if we won the World Series)
        Florida Manager Jim Leyland: My wife doesn't like me that much. I can't retire.

      • (after Fernández misplayed a Craig Counsell ground ball in the bottom of the 11th inning) Play-By-Play Announcer Bob Costas: Tony Fernández, who has worn hero's laurels throughout the postseason including earlier in this seventh game of the World Series, now, cruel as it may seem, perhaps being fitted for goat horns.
        (calling Edgar Rentería's Series winning base hit)
        Play-By-Play Announcer Bob Costas: A of Nagy's glove, into center field! The Florida Marlins have won...the World Series!
