It all looks so easy from the dugout. It's called the 'dirt rule'. The farther you get away from the dirt, the easier this game looks. It looks pretty darned easy from the upper deck. And, like I say, it looks easy to me now. I'm sitting in the dugout, and I see a guy try to pull an outside pitch, he hits a slow ground ball to second base, and it drives me crazy. I'm thinking, 'Why does he do that? Why is this guy so stupid?' Of course, I must have done the exact same thing 5000 times when I was a player.

Hitting is a strange thing. You're so smart talking about hitting, and then you step into the batter's box, and something happens to you. You get stupid. It's like everything goes out the window. You step into the batter's box, and immediately you turn into a third-grader. Fortunately, pitchers are like second-graders.

Today's players are only going to do what makes them more money. The agent tells his player what management is looking for and what his player is noted for. Most times it's not for hitting triples. You're either a singles hitter, a doubles hitter or a home run hitter. You never hear anyone say, 'That guy's a triples hitter.' I don't know of too many arbitration cases that have been won because the guy could hit triples.

Most pitchers fear losing their fastball and, since I don't have one, the only thing I have to fear is fear itself.
