“I’ve been hearing this since I first joined the Reds organization, that I’m going to be the next this or that. It’s tough on a young player coming up. You show some positive things and everybody jumps on that and says you should be the next Willie Mays.”

“I was fortunate to play for Pete Rose and have teammates like Ken Griffey Sr., Tony Perez and Dave Concepcion. I grew up in the game with a mature attitude. I’ve always known it was better to be seen and not heard.”

“I love the game, it’s the greatest game on earth, that’s why I can’t understand all of this talk about trying to make the game better. People talk about the high strike zone and changing this and that. Why? To speed up the game? That’s the beauty of baseball. There is no time element.”

“It’s like, now you’re actually complaining because you’re making $9 million and guys are making more? If it makes you that upset, quit. Leave the game. Go home then and try finding another job that’s going to pay you that.”
