"It’s a long season, got to roll with the highs and lows. Got to go out there and give it everything you have when your name is called."

- Stephen Strasburg

"The mentality has been the same. The first month of the season I was just bad. I didn’t play well and when I did play well I hit balls hard right at people. To be honest with you, just staying the course, riding it out and understanding it’s a long season. You’re going to have some ups and downs."

 - Jeff Baker

"[Brad Ausmus] is never going to be a guy who’s going to push the panic button. He’s very laid-back, and that has always been kind of how he approached the game. There won’t be that sense of urgency. That’s not what he does, and a lot of players prefer that. It’s a long season, and panicking really doesn’t get you anywhere.”

- C.J. Nitkowski

"That’s what this is all about. It’s a long season, and you’re never as good or as bad as one game."

- Jerod Edmondson, Rockland Boulders first baseman

“We’re in a little bit of a rut. But there’s six weeks left. It’s a long season. We’ve got to regroup.”

“It’s a long season and at this point we are just looking to compete and learn to come back when we are down. This late in the season the playoffs may not be in the picture for us, but we have the opportunity to grow individually and face adversity.”

- Ryan Mathews, Beloit Snappers designated hitter

At the beginning, [playing a variety of positions] was kind of nerve-racking. It’s something that I’ve gotten used to throughout the year, and I’ve enjoyed it. I would say it’s kept me fresh. Obviously there’s times when you hit a wall; it’s a long season. Moving around has helped me out a lot. It’s kind of kept me engaged.”

- Brock Holt

 Rilo Kiley - "My Slumbering Heart"

In my dreams 

I see myself hitting a baseball

In a green field somewhere near a freeway 

I’m all tan and smiling and running from 3rd base 

And it’s hot and 

The kids keep on playing the driving game

And they’re singing the same goddamn refrain

And the sky is a bluish grey. 

And it’s become just like a chemical stress

Tracing the lines in my face for 

Something more beautiful than is there 

I’ve barely been gone.

“Ultimately, if you are going to be a leader, you have to play hard every day. In baseball, you can’t jump up and down and yell and scream. It’s different when you’re only playing once a week. We’re playing every day.”
