Mike Rizzo quotes

Adam was second in all of baseball last year in percentage of times going first-to-third on singles and also second in going first-to-home on doubles.feedback

He wants to get you out, but he wants to strike you out. From pitch one -- good stuff, bad stuff, in between stuff -- he is in full 100 percent attack mode at all times. It doesn't matter if it's 12 degrees or 100 degrees.feedback

The ninth inning is a different animal than the eighth inning. Every pitcher reacts to it in his own way.feedback

We hire people whose strengths complement other people. That goes for everybody. We've hired people to compensate for my weaknesses.feedback

It's a good resource. How do sinker-ballers attack the ninth? As a scout, I'm looking at his stuff, and I'm like, It's really good stuff. Throws strikes. He puts it over the plate. He's got that heavy, heavy sinker. Should be really good. Now, that sinker is sometimes hard to command. … Sometimes, you have to learn how to control the sink, and then learn when to throw a good sinker for a called strike, and when to wipe you out with a sinker when you're ahead in the count.feedback

I said, Do you know how good your stuff is? I told him, These hitters are taking food off your table. You've got to stop that.' That was the biggest thing with him. Ultimately, I don't know if he knew how good he was.feedback

I'm all about players speaking out when they feel like speaking out. They're grown men. You've seen it when people on our roster have said negative things toward me and my decisions. I salute their right to express their opinion.feedback

We've been highly scrutinized on how we do our business, but we do our business pretty well. I've seen 'dysfunction' and stuff like that. We are not dysfunctional. When you have the track record we have, the communication I have with the owners – Ted and I specifically, me and them – I think it works for us.feedback

This is the organization I built from scratch. I feel it's my home. I would feel very comfortable being here long term. But we have a contract. I've never brought it up. If one day they approach me, we'll discuss it, and I'd be happy to stay.feedback

We've got guys who can pitch multiple innings. So yes, I would feel comfortable going into the season without a true long man.feedback

I just want him healthy. Spring training means nothing. He's right where we want him to be, coming along perfectly. His baseball IQ is off the charts. He's not a speedster trying to play baseball. He's a baseball player that's a 'tooled-up' player too.feedback

I said sure. He was here for a long time and did a lot for the franchise. We figured, why not?feedback

I never had any bad feelings for him. It's a business. You have to do what you have to do.feedback

In our quest to add some veteran relief help, we had touched base with him the whole offseason. And it got to the point where it made a lot of sense for us.feedback

I think he could do that. I know that he's doing that to continue throwing and to keep his shoulder strong, preparing himself to pitch in the regular season. Seeing the ball come out of his hand the way he's throwing it, I think it works well for him to A) keep his shoulder in top form to prepare for the season, and B) if he has to resort to that, he can.feedback

I think the White Sox did a great job of acquiring good, potential upside players. We got ourselves a good, young skillful player that we can control at below-market values for five seasons. And, again, you got to give to get.feedback

It's never easy to let go of your prospects. You feel like a proud daddy when they get to the big leagues.feedback

We discussed (Eaton) and several other players with the White Sox for quite a while now. It did gain momentum after the Sale deal was done. It actually came together fairly quickly over the last couple of days.feedback

He's a high-energy guy. There's an edge to him.feedback

We traded from a position of depth. We felt we had great depth in our starting pitching.feedback

We put a lot of effort into it and thought we made a good, valiant effort ... and we fell short.feedback

They've got themselves a great citizen and a great pitcher.feedback

We gave him an offer that we felt was market value and what we were comfortable giving him. You're talking about one of the elite closers in the game and a great teammate. Conducted himself perfectly as a Washington National. At the end of the day, the Giants offered him more, and he took the deal. That's what free agency's all about.feedback

I think it would be kind of pushing it. Just the calendar, it's unlikely that he'd contribute in that first series.feedback

It's unfortunate. Wilson's having an All-Star season and really a breakout season for himself. So it's disappointing. I feel bad for him.feedback
