Clayton Kershaw quotes

Oct 25 2017

You can't teach what he's doing. No mechanics or anything can teach the mind-set and the competitiveness, the clutch-ness, whatever that is. It seems like every single night he's in the right position to come up with a big hit.feedback

Oct 25 2017

Everybody knew he was a great utility player; he was going to help us out in that role. But as far as being an everyday whatever-you-want-to-put-him-at – shortstop, center fielder, leadoff hitter – with that type of pop, that type of at-bat quality, I would never have guessed it until he started doing it. He's one of the elite players in the game.feedback

Oct 24 2017

It's going to be hotter than normal but at the same time, I like to sweat. I like to get that perspiration and make sure I have a firm grip on the ball. And, I mean, it's the World Series, so if it's a little bit hotter than usual, that's fine with me.feedback

Oct 23 2017

Yeah, it is going to be hot. But, no, I don't think it's going to change anything. I think by 5 o'clock, the sun will be down. They're from Houston. I'm from Texas. It's going to be hot for everybody. We're all used to it.feedback

Oct 22 2017

Yasiel's probably one of the main things that you've seen. I think Yasiel's really responded to Doc as manager. Doc has really kind of taken him aside and really given him the attention that probably he needed at first to gain that trust.feedback

Oct 20 2017

That means I'm working out tomorrow, so I'll see you guys at Dodger Stadium.feedback

Oct 20 2017

It really is a testament to this team and what we stand for. It's just next-man-up mentality. As a starting pitcher, when you get seven runs, your job is to get them back in the dugout as fast as possible.feedback

Oct 20 2017

It means a lot. I'm just happy. I'm really happy right now. I'm happy I can share it with this group of guys.feedback

Oct 20 2017

To be a part of an organization like this that gets to go to the postseason five times in a row and seven out of my [10 seasons]. That doesn't happen very often. Patience isn't the right word, but I guess I'm just thankful that I've gotten to have this many opportunities to get here. That's a testament to this organization. Fortunately for me tonight, I was able to do that for the most part. But it really is a special group of guys. It's tough to explain, but I'm just thankful to be a part of it right now.feedback

Oct 20 2017

This whole night in general has been, I mean, when you're a kid, you just hope you make it to the big leagues. So to get to go say you're going to play in the World Series, it's an incredibly special moment. Up there with getting married and having kids, it's right up there with one of the best days of my life.feedback

Oct 20 2017

That's probably the end of the interview, because Charlie's ready to go.feedback

Oct 19 2017

Relaxing is probably not the right word. (The full rest) is probably just a testament to the team we have more than anything.feedback

Oct 19 2017

The way we've been playing and how everybody has been able to contribute and everybody has been stepping up. There's been no need to do that, which is a good luxury to have. But I wouldn't say relaxing by any means.feedback

Oct 19 2017

It's a tough spot because obviously I believe in our team and I believe that we can win tonight. But I can't let myself mentally go there. But hopefully -- yeah, hopefully it doesn't work out and I don't have to pitch. But we'll see.feedback

Oct 19 2017

I guess you learn that it's probably humbling for us, realizing we're not unstoppable. We're not unbeatable, which was probably a good thing for us.feedback

Oct 19 2017

I don't feel any different than when I feel normal. I feel normal, which is great.feedback

Oct 18 2017

Those guys have been unbelievable. That's a great sign for us. We know if we can keep it close for those guys, we've got a pretty good chance.feedback

Oct 15 2017 - Uber

Try to walk a few blocks and get an Uber if we lose again.feedback

Oct 15 2017

Until somebody beats them, they're the best team. So we've got to go get them.feedback

Oct 10 2017

The best we've seen him since we got him.feedback

Oct 07 2017

I just didn't have much left, I don't know. Hopefully when you give up hits, maybe one or two would stay in the ballpark. But tonight it didn't seem like that was going to happen.feedback

Oct 01 2017

I'm as ready as I can be. Feel 100 percent. Feel ready to go.feedback

Oct 01 2017

I'm sure every year I feel like we're going to win the World Series. This year is no different. We've had a better regular season than I've ever been a part of.feedback

Sep 12 2017

It's not my job to diagnose it. Just to see the results, and not like it.feedback

Jul 23 2017

Some of the symptoms aren't as bad as they could be.feedback

Jul 16 2017

Everybody's asking, Is the ball juiced? Is it the era for home runs? But there are still a lot of guys not giving up home runs. There are a lot of guys pitching really well. To me it's not that big a deal. Offense is what people like to see; it's exciting. But I think pitching will still win out in the end.feedback

Jul 10 2017

Football is football. You can't even really compare yourself. It's just everybody loves football America. That's just the way it is.feedback

Jul 09 2017

I wanted to do it for him. It was a good way to end the first half. It felt good to get out there and finish a game. It would feel good to go out there and keep on winning games.feedback

Jul 05 2017

The biggest key there is just not to exhale. You've got to really focus back in.feedback

Jul 05 2017

This is the team right behind us, so for us to get the first win is big.feedback

Jun 07 2017

I didn't have much today in the tank. I felt fine, it just wasn't coming out quite the way I wanted to today. I felt like I threw a lot of off-speed pitches. That's good lineup, too. They have a really good team over there. I'm fortunate to get a win.feedback

Jun 07 2017

I guess when you retire, you look back on that stuff. I'm not taking it for granted but also not thinking about it, how to quantify it. It'll be cool some day.feedback

Jun 07 2017

It'll be cool some day. Hopefully, I don't forget and leave it behind.feedback

Jun 07 2017

There was a lot going on there both ways. Without elaborating, that's the way it went. I'm going to say something cliché, but it is what it is. There you go. I think I answered it as best as I'm going to.feedback

Jun 02 2017

Our bullpen, can't say enough about those guys. Five [scoreless] innings, Kenley being willing to go out there in a non-save situation and a second inning, it's a testament to him.feedback

Jun 02 2017

Strikeouts were a little bit contagious today. Sometimes you just kind of get on that roll.feedback

May 07 2017

I haven't seen too many people put a barrel on that, let alone hit a home run. It was pretty impressive what he is doing. He's just an all-around good baseball player. It's pretty special.feedback

Apr 14 2017

Guys that you became pretty good buddies with, it's not easy for me. I wouldn't say I'm not looking forward to it, but I'm definitely going to have to block it out a little bit.feedback

Apr 14 2017

I don't really look forward to it. You almost just try to block it out. It's not fun to pitch to people that you know. I'm not good at separating that. I think I'm just going to have to really focus and think about it like he's another guy, and then, the next day I can talk to him.feedback

Apr 13 2017

You could definitely have a tendency to be impatient with it and just try to hurry up and get to October. But baseball's a sport where it's a big accomplishment to make it to the postseason. It's a long season, and you can't take for granted that you're going to be there. The good thing is we have a lot of experience in here, and a lot of guys that embrace the grind.feedback

Apr 13 2017

I think on paper you could say that we are better, for sure. We've just got to go prove it now. We've got a lot of guys back. Really we're the same team with guys healthy, and the addition of Forsythe and Gutierrez and Romo.feedback

Apr 13 2017

Every time I do get to pitch now, in the back of my head I'm a little bit more grateful, knowing it's not just a given that I'm going to be out there every fifth day. I'm thankful for that, but my mind-set hasn't changed. One of these days I'll maybe not fail and win a World Series.feedback

Apr 09 2017

I think that [slider] was probably the best pitch of the three that I had tonight. The fastball command, there were some instances where I got into deep counts. They did a good job. My pitch count got a little higher than I would like it to. But you give them credit. They battled. That's a good team. You can't make mistakes and I just made too many tonight. You gotta finish out your outing. After that first bloop fell in in the sixth, you've got to limit the damage.feedback

Apr 09 2017

People tell you over and over how different it is and how the ball flies and all that stuff. I just think you have to be better than that. You can't think about that. You just go pitch. Tonight, I don't think that was a factor. The balls that were going to go out were going to go out [anywhere]. I like this place actually. I like the park. It's fun to come here. It's always a challenge, more so because of the team than the place.feedback

Apr 09 2017

That was cool for a little bit, I guess. You never expect to give up home runs. Kudos to them. Good job.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - AT&T

Yeah, I guess I never really thought about t like that, but at the same time, having that many guys back, to come as close as we did last year, to bring a majority of those guys back last year, everybody remembers that. Hopefully you gain experience from failure. I would know. So hopefully that makes us a little better this year.feedback

Apr 03 2017

The day the butterflies leave, I need to find something else to do.feedback

Apr 03 2017

I think definitely you want to mix your pitches as best as you can and make sure you have everything working the way you want it to.feedback

Apr 01 2017

I think everybody knows our team was plenty talented last year, we just had a lot of guys get hurt. So hopefully we don't get hurt, and it should be OK.feedback

Oct 23 2016

You look back and think about the whole season as a whole. It's tough to swallow tonight, obviously, but I'd rather be in this position and fail than not to get to be in this situation at all.feedback

Oct 23 2016

They just kept tacking on runs. I gave up some two-out hits and some homers and some two-strike hits – just a lot of things that you can't do in a game like this.feedback

Oct 17 2016

And yeah, after Dave came out and that, I kind of talked my way into it. I really wanted to – he was probably not going to trust me again after that, but, fortunately, he hit it at somebody, so it was good.feedback

Oct 16 2016

It was one of those games where one pitch could have been the deciding factor. So, really just kind of couldn't look up for a minute for air and just kind of kept going through it and fortunate to get through it tonight.feedback

Oct 15 2016

Yeah, I feel fine. I feel good. I'm excited. It's been a little bit since we got to do this, and Wrigley Field, it's going to be pretty exciting. The fans, everywhere you go, people are talking about it, so it will be fun tomorrow, for sure.feedback

Oct 15 2016

I think that they're constantly working counts, getting into good hitters counts, getting on base. And that's something that is difficult for a starting pitcher. You got to – you want to limit the damage but at the same time you can't go for four innings, a hundred pitches. So you got to figure out how to get these guys out with quality pitches quickly. And it's not an easy task.feedback

Oct 14 2016

The adrenaline rush was pretty good right there. At the at the end of the day, if we don't win that game, we're going home, anyway, so what does it matter? I just wanted to be available, and it ended up to the point where I could help out tonight.feedback

Oct 14 2016

We're all exhausted after every game, even if you're sitting on the bench. These games are such grinds that it's just such a relieving feeling when they're over and you win. It's a little bit of an adrenaline rush right there.feedback

Oct 11 2016

Our bullpen has been unbelievable. Joe did what Joe's been doing all season. He's been through a lot in his career but he came in and shut them down.feedback

Sep 25 2016

It's the way it's been all year, different guys doing different things to win games.feedback

Aug 24 2016

(We were) simulating at-bats, sequences and not just throwing pitch after pitch, having a thought behind it. That's a good step. My arm feels good. I feel the ball is coming out OK. I think it's time to see some hitters and make sure I can still get guys out.feedback
