Here are some notable quotes from the weekend clash at GABP:Friday (3-0 Win):
+ “Just swing hard in case you hit it. I’m a pitcher, I don’t get paid to hit. I just happened to put a good swing on it, and it left the yard.” -Mat Latos on his first career home run
+ “That was unbelievable, to hear the crowd. Those fans have to understand if they do what they just did, we’re going to win a lot of ballgames. We’re going to feed off that energy.” -Latos on the electric, sold out crowd
+ “I don’t feel like I could go out there and help a ballclub. I don’t feel like I would be better than the next guy, if that makes sense. You have to be at a really high level to play at the major league level. I’m not ready for that yet.” -Joey Votto before the game regarding a timetable for
