Sometimes you see somebody standing there watching a home run for a while, and that's not fun for a pitcher to see. It's (also) not good for a pitcher to scream at a batter after he's struck him out, or doing arm motions. I come from the old school. Hit the ball, run, throw, catch it -- that's the way the game should be played.

St. Louis Cardinals

On White Sox Pitcher Early Wynn

Melvyn Leroy Harder
Cleveland Indians

The no-hitter is nice, but I need to keep an even keel. We still have a lot ahead. I'm going to call my mom, maybe brag a bit. But tomorrow, it's back to work.
