"We all just love pitching. We've been doing it all for so long that it doesn't really matter what slot we fall into."
"We all definitely want the ball in big games but we're not going to fight over who gets it. We really just want to win the game."

"Just because we're number one right now doesn't mean we're gonna be number one in the end. We got to keep working for it."
"We've all been playing with each other for so long and had so much success building up through the years that I don't know that we expected it but we definitely thought we were capable of it."

"I always like the big game just because it gets me pumped up and I feel like I play to a higher level."

"My out pitch is probably my knuckle change or maybe my curveball, I don't know. My main thing is just keeping hitters off balance because I don't throw as hard as these three guys."
If it's the state championship game let's say or the biggest game of the year, I'll count to three, you guys tell me which guy is gonna go out there, which guy you want to see there... 1, 2, 3.
"Brian, Danny, I got to say Eggy."

"I think Danny's the guy. He's the one going D-1, pitching at Siena. He was last year throwing one-hitters, two-hitters all last year. He's doing the same thing this year so he's two years in a row going strong."
"I think Brian is good when you have a guy that needs a lot of junk because his curveball is one of the best curveballs I've ever seen."
"I wouldn't call myself the traditional closer. I'm not coming in and throwing as hard as like Mariano Rivera or Brian Eggleston but I like to throw strikes low in the zone and I like to mix my pitches as well."
"It's just about winning the games. We're not really worried about who has the better ERA or who wins more games. It's just sort of like a team thing."
