“The easiest thing for me to do is the physical work. The weightlifting, conditioning—for me, that’s the easiest part of baseball. The hard part is controlling my emotions, controlling my thoughts in between games.”

“I really feel like I can throw a strike with a good pitch and get a guy out pretty much any time.”

“I don’t feel like I have to avoid a spot where a guy is going to hit it. I feel I can throw it anywhere I want and get what I want.’’

”When I start to get groundball outs I get into a zone. That’s where I want to be. In the zone.’’

”I am the ace and I need to be able to pick the team up when things aren’t going well. I like that responsibility.’’

"The biggest thing I've learned is location.''

"I've been fortunate with the changeup. I've been able to throw it for strikes.''

”There’s no better feeling than keeping a winning streak going. I am okay pitching after a loss, but when you have those wins behind you and you can keep the team going, that’s the best.’’

"I am sincerely grateful for the incredible support and compassion the Blue Jays fans have always shown me. Toronto will forever have a special place in my heart. The memories will last a lifetime and so will my gratitude.''

”Any time you're basically raised in an AL East organization that’s not Boston or New York, you grow up hating them.’’

“It's surreal, it really is. I just wanted to pitch here, to pitch in the postseason. To go out and have a game like that, it's a dream come true.”

“This atmosphere on this team with this group of guys—it’s just a lot of fun.”
