"It’s a long season, man. I mean, we’ve still got 140-plus games so for me to push the panic button right now is no point because it’s a long year so stay healthy, just keep going and grinding and getting after it. The main thing is that we’re winning so obviously find positivity there and obviously look to do the job again today and find some way to contribute to the team."

- Brett Lawrie

“Yes, [learning a new defensive position] affected [my offense] a little bit. But it’s all right. I’m a good hitter. It’s a long season. This is the first two weeks.

- Carlos Santana

"I don’t really know what to expect, but in the back of my mind I’m telling myself it’s a long season and to take it easy on my body. I want to get into a routine and do what makes me comfortable and ready to play for that night’s game."

- Chad Hishaw, Burlington Bees

"It’s a long season. There will be a lot of ups and downs. You’ve got to ride that train. You can’t get too frustrated or it carries over. I have to stay even keel and stay within the process."

- Eric Aguilera, Burlington Bees

___________________

"Throughout my professional career this has happened before. It’s something that I am trying to break. I’ve been a slow starter. It’s kind of a pattern I’ve developed. It isn’t something I look forward to, but at the same time, I know it’s a long season with plenty of time left."

- Jedd Gyorko

___________________

I’ve got this guy 0-2 and he hit a home run. It’s frustrating because I know in my past I never missed my pitch up. It’s something that’s happening right now and I have to figure it out. The season just started … I’m worried too sometimes because I want to be good for the team. I want to make the White Sox win. But it’s baseball. It’s a long season. I believe in myself and that I’m going to be OK.”

“We didn’t overwhelm them Monday night with runs scored and all that. But you could see guys coming back to the dugout a couple of days ago shaking their heads. But now it’s like, ‘I’m going to get them next time.’ I just think things like that develop over the course of a season, when you can learn from 11 tough games, so to speak, and realize it’s a long season.”

- Bobby Meacham, New Hampshire Fisher Cats manager

“It’s early, you can’t press. It’s a long season and you just have to keep going through the grind.”

- Anthony Rizzo

___________________

"It’s a long season and weather always has an impact on how good your attendance is. There are 70 games that you have to host. You just have to wait and see but we’re very optimistic and we continue to have the same enthusiasm from fans that we had last year. As long as that momentum continues, we’ll do very positive things."

- Stan Logan Birmingham Barons co-owner
