In baseball, my theory is to strive for consistency, not to worry about the numbers. If you dwell on statistics you get shortsighted, if you aim for consistency, the numbers will be there at the end.
If the Mets can win the World Series, the United States can get out of Vietnam.
There are only two places in the league - first place and no place.
I'm a huge advocate of pitching. You have to have good pitching as the solid core, the foundation. It keeps you in every game.
The thing most people don't understand is that pitching isn't the same every time out.
