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.

It's funny. The bullpen is a closed environment, but I get a sense of freedom there that I don't get in the dugout or clubhouse. I guess I just like being locked in a closet, taking verbal abuse from a lot of hostile people.

Prior to 1983, I was always ridiculed at ballparks about an ailment I had during the 1980 World Series. Now, since 1983, I'm always known as the Pine Tar Guy. Now what you you rather be known as?
