Torey Lovullo quotes

Oct 04 2017

I want to tell you something about Paul Goldschmidt. I knew going in the last day that Paul Goldschmidt had to go 1-for-4 over two days to hit .300. I don't think he knew. Then I approached him about the idea a couple days ago, and what do you think he told me? Exactly what you'd expect. I could care less. I don't care about hitting .300. I want this team to win. I'll do everything I can possibly do to help this ballclub win a game, win today, and I'm looking forward to Wednesday.feedback

So I feel like that entire clubhouse feels the exact same way. Emotionally, I think we'll be prepared. Will I change my strategy? Probably not. It's worked all year long here. We made it this far. For me to change and do something totally different, it's really not my style. But I can assure you that, if I do, it will have a strategy, there will be a reason for it.feedback

Oct 04 2017

I'm not concerned about it at all. I don't think he is either. I think that he's been grinding away at it. We know that it hasn't been as productive over the past couple weeks because he's such a catalyst for this team and this organization. When your superstar doesn't hit, it's recognizable.feedback

Sep 12 2017

We couldn't get that big hit or that big moment to push across for us. We had some opportunities. We just didn't do it.feedback

Sep 11 2017

Times have changed. The newer front offices are engaged and involved on an impressive level, and the key point is the relationship between the manager and the front office. To me, it's like a marriage. You've got to have a relationship where you share the good and the bad. From Day 1, Mike and I had aggressive, understanding, learning conversations. There's never, ever a judgment. We're doing this for one reason -- their players and their performance on the field. We checked a lot of boxes quickly.feedback

Sep 11 2017

For me, it's been one of the common denominators that's helped our pitching staff. That was a priority -- getting a couple of veteran guys in here who had a history of handling staffs and could frame pitches and call games and read swings and develop rapports with pitchers. Without Jeff Mathis and Chris Iannetta, we would not be where we are.feedback

Aug 31 2017

The very first play really set an incredible tone. G.B. getting a hustle double. It just pepped up the entire dugout and redirected our entire thoughts as a group. We followed suit from there.feedback

Aug 26 2017

His statistics and everything are phenomenal. But he's the leader of the team in every way.feedback

Aug 23 2017

When he stands up and walks off the mound and does something like that, it kind of gets me excited, it gets the group excited, and it adds a little intensity to the moment. I'm all about that.feedback

Jul 18 2017

We're excited. He's very capable. He's a special guy with a lot of confidence at the plate.feedback

Jul 08 2017

These athletes, what they want to do after a performance where they maybe didn't have their absolute best is to get out there as quick as possible and turn the page.feedback

Jul 08 2017

On a night when we were maybe a little down and smarting after a tough series in LA, we had a guy step up in Zack Greinke. He was the right guy for us at the right moment. ... He had the weight of 24 guys on his shoulders and carried them.feedback

Jul 08 2017

I want to choose my words carefully because I don't want to sound like an idiot, but I really felt we played head to head with those guys in a tough environment that was a playoff atmosphere. Even though we lost the games, which stinks, I think we grew up and are prepared a little more because of what happened the past three days.feedback

Jul 06 2017

They certainly delivered a 1-2 punch on us. That's why they're having a good year. We did our absolute best to make things happen, but you've got to give them some credit – two lefties shut us down.feedback

Jun 20 2017 - Carbon

The traditions of baseball are changing. You don't see a Johnny Bench or Ivan Rodriguez catching 150 games, or in more modern times, a Salvador Perez or Yadier Molina. They're still there, but I think it's spreading itself out now, because it's such a heavy workload and we believe in rest.feedback

Jun 18 2017

They were resilient. We had a couple tough moments today and these guys didn't let that affect them. I said from the beginning, overcoming tough moments, cycling it through and then coming out the other end is something that winning teams do and we do that very well.feedback

Jun 04 2017

I thought we came out after a very tough game yesterday, got some early hits, scored an early run, and kind of set a better tone. We had some opportunities and it didn't translate.feedback

Jun 03 2017

It's always a special moment. Something's going right.feedback

May 26 2017

The day was paced by Robbie. On a night where we really needed it with a bullpen that might have been a little bit tired or short in certain places, Robbie gave us seven great innings.feedback

May 13 2017

He's doing OK, and I think we're all lucky and fortunate for that. We're still trying to drill down to making sure everything is OK. There's a strategy to pitching in and there's a need for pitching in, and by no means do I think anybody tried to hit Chris Iannetta in the face yesterday. For me, that's why it's a non-issue. He's eager to play, said he could play tonight if he had to, but obviously that's not going to happen.feedback

May 13 2017

I think the pitch just got away from their pitcher, and I'll stand by that. Anytime you see one of your family members go through something like that, it's pretty traumatic. It had a huge impact on our dugout. He is a veteran, he is well-liked. He's a leader, and he went down, and it hurts.feedback

Apr 24 2017

It's really unfortunate. Shelby has been throwing the ball extremely well. You just hate to have a situation like this pop up.feedback

Apr 10 2017

Everybody realizes that that pitch got away from Taijuan, and I'm hoping that Buster's OK. I don't think there was anything retaliatory involved in that, it's just something that got away from Matt Moore. He was a little fatigued, it was deep into his outing and I think it just happened to hit David. It's not a big issue for me.feedback

Apr 10 2017

We want to make sure everybody is strong in August and September, when hopefully we're playing some really meaningful games and they're full speed ahead.feedback

Mar 20 2017

We're still examining all the starters. I know the door is closing quickly. We're going to have to start to make some decisions, but there's still more time for these guys to throw, and we're still evaluating.feedback

Mar 18 2017

If it were a different time of the year, I would probably be a little bit concerned. I would be worried about fatigue and stuff like that. I still think he's climbing on the 'up' elevator. He knows what he needs to do to get where he wants to be on April 2.feedback

Dec 07 2016

Everybody has a chance to compete as a key piece in the bullpen. It's wide open. It's no mystery that maybe we need somebody in the back end, maybe a closer that's going to let young pitchers develop.feedback

Nov 04 2016

I'm excited to get to work with the staff and players to help lead this organization back to title contention.feedback
