A quote from Ron Gardenhire, brought to you by Kim Jones.

"He's one of those warriors for us, doesn't like to miss a start, wants the ball..." Ron Gardenhire on Carl Pavano.

Joe Girardi told Marc Carig that Mark Teixeira had a cortisone shot on this thumb a month ago.

In an interview with ASAP sports, Alex Rodriguez called the Yankees the "David" in the David and Goliath situation.
