Quote of the Day:

Carlos Ruiz

  • I'm trying to get myself in good shape, do my workouts, so that when I am back, I am ready to go.
  • The day I got to Los Angeles after I got traded, Chase Utley was the first guy I saw. He welcomed me. He gave me a big hug. He was, like, 'You. You are my brother.'
  • I always say that I think my job is behind home plate, call a good game, play some good defense, and also, I know I was not a power hitter.
  • I love baseball. I love my city, Philadelphia and Panama. I want to do my best and show everybody... I'll do my best.
  • Now, every organization has to have a translator for the Hispanics on the teams, and that helps a lot.
  • You have to go out there and do your best and help the team win.
  • Baseball continues, life continues, and I have to continue to work.
  • I really love Philadelphia and all of the fans, my teammates, the front office, the organization, everybody. I know I'm going to miss them. I really appreciate everything we did together. On the other side, I am happy because I have a chance to go to the playoffs. Another opportunity, maybe, to go to the World Series.
  • As a kid, baseball was always my passion.
  • For almost every interview, I had to have others translate for me, and look for someone to do that. I had a lot of miserable moments. But my teammates treated me well and helped me gain confidence.
