  • QUOTES (2)

    • (on his starter Hiroki Kuroda)
      New York Manager Joe Girardi: This is how good he's been. He has been on a tremendous roll for us and the consistency of his sinker and slider is really the factor.
      (on his right fielder Ichiro Suzuki)
      New York Manager Joe Girardi: I think he's probably hit to his ballpark, in a sense, all those years. Seattle plays extremely large and if he had been a Yankee for a number of years, who knows how many (home runs) he might have hit? But we know that there's power there. You watch his BP and you can see it. Our ballpark's a little bit different, and you might see more power.

    • (on his starter Josh Beckett)
      Boston Manager Bobby Valentine: I thought Josh had some of the best stuff that he's had in a while. He just had trouble with two hitters, (shortstop Derek) Jeter and (right fielder) Ichiro (Suzuki). They kind of did him in.
