"I've been itching to get back out there. I feel good and could probably have played if I needed to. But we didn't want to take any chances. I'm not used to sitting on the bench. It's uncomfortable." -- Brandon Loy on the odds he plays this weekend.
It's not their call. It's not their arm. I felt fine when I came out of the game. I can't explain it. It's just one of those nights that I was on. People are going to judge no matter what happens, good or bad. That's fine.
But if they're not in the situation, then they don't know what's going on. That one day, one outing, is not going to make or break a career. So I threw 169 pitches. It certainly didn't feel like that many. Yeah, my arm hurts now (one day later). But it's hurt a lot worse before in my career. People can say it's wrong, but there is no way I would change any of it. It was a great moment."
We never would have won that game last year. We wouldn't have been close. In fact, we probably would have gone down in order in the ninth inning. That's how different things are."
