(link is to an mp3 file) "Luck is a very small part of what you do, but clearly it is part of what you do, and although our percentage of balls put in play was good, the hit ratio of that equation wasn't there in the early going, and now it is starting to be."

"[Luck] gets underestimated in its importance, but the fate of this is in our hands. There's too many matchup games left for this to not to be in our direct control." "[Bill Casto] is more of the mechanics kind, and MIke [Maddux]'s more of the big-picture guy." "I don't think we have a [Ryan Braun-type] midseason replacement. All of our better prospects right now are at AA, and not that you can't come to the big leagues from AA, and that's been done before, but I think under ideal circumstances we're probably another year from that...I just don't think their time has come yet, unless we have injury." "The fans of Wisconsin now understand that good young players aren't going to play their five years in Milwaukee and then either be traded or leave via free agency." "Baseball is in the lifeline of the community. It's front-and-center both from a media point of view and an interest point of view...This is very supportive crowd, it's a crowd that's hungry for success, and supportive of what we're trying to do...When you're able to stay on par with the Packers in terms of attention, you know you've done something."
