Quotations
  • "He was just moving the ball so well," Ethier said. "He's one of those guys who can be wildly effective at times, and other times he can spot up a pitch and throw something in there at 93-94 - then reach back for 96-97 - and it's moving all over the place. He can throw his other pitches for strikes, too, so it's a tough combination. In the past, I've seen a lot of cutters from him, and tonight I didn't see one. It was all two-seam fastballs and one breaking ball."

  • "No one likes it, and no one's necessarily accepting it all the way. But you've just got to show up and be ready for whatever your role is that day, whether it's starting or pinch-hitting or being a defensive replacement," Ethier said. "I guess this is a situation where too much of a good thing is not necessarily good. But you've got to commend everyone for being professional and handling it as well as they can."
