My major league debut came at old Busch Stadium on Grand Avenue in St. Louis against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The first pitch I threw was to third baseman Bob Bailey. It was a fastball, low and away. He ripped it for a home run down the left field line. I said, "Damn, that was a pretty good pitch."

I've been released five times, I'm bald and I have a big nose. I'll make it through this.

You're trying your damndest, you strike out and they boo you. I act like it doesn't bother me, like I don't hear anything the fans say, but the truth is I hear every word of it and it kills me.

I'm going to Radio Shack to buy one of those headsets like the broadcasters use. It seems as soon as you put them on, you get 100 times smarter.

You've got these smaller ballparks. Give me four more Wrigley Fields to hit in when I played and see what kind of numbers I would have put up. How many of the balls that I hit to the warning track would've been in six rows deep at Coors Field? At my peak I probably averaged about 38 homers a season. If I played today I'd probably average about 53. So if you weigh one of my old homers it might be equal to about 1.4 of today's.

Y'know everybody says I have good hands and everything. But the thing that makes a good shortstop is the footwork involved. If you have good footwork, if you can get to the ball, you can set up and get your body out of the way so you can make the throw, I think that's the most important thing.

Ichiro (Suzuki) makes that team run. They've got veteran players they can really depend on in Edgar (Martinez) and (John) Olerud. (Carlos) Guillen has been better at shortstop than he was at third. David Bell doesn't get the credit he deserves. (Mike) Cameron is a really good player. But these are not front-page headline guys. This is not a team of controversy. They just play.
