In Quotes: NLDS Game Two

"We might as well not have had gloves on." - Derek Lee [MLB]

"I don't think you can win 97 ballgames playing that way. It wasn't good baseball. In fact, the last two days, they've probably been the worst games we've played all year from a walking and errors standpoint. It wasn't fun to watch, I can tell you that." - Lou Piniella [MLB]

"I thought it was a corporate crowd [Wednesday] night." - Lou Piniella [Trib]

"I'm not surprised, I'm shocked. We have a good defense. 'D-Lee,' for me, is the best first baseman. He had an error. Also Ramirez. It's weird. I think it's the first time you see four people in the infield make an error. There's nothing you can do about it. Just keep the score tied and close, and then you give your team a chance to come back and win the ballgame." - Carlos Zambrano [MLB]

"Don't blame this one on Carlos Zambrano. He made his pitches. He got the ground balls. He gave his team a chance. Blame the guys behind him." - Steve Rosenbloom

"Maybe the Cubs can stop by Disneyland on their way to Dodger Stadium on Saturday and take one last look at those World Series expectations that were last seen headed for Fantasyland." - Gordon Wittenmyer

"There was plenty of gloom and doom to see Thursday, as the 100-year drought nears 101." - Paul Sullivan

"Teams don't come back after losing the first two at home in a five-game series. And you know what? They don't deserve to come back." - Rick Telander

"But the way they played Thursday night, they couldn't have won a Little League World Series."- Mike Downey
