"He'll be great wherever he goes. He was a teammate of mine in Pittsburgh, so I've known him a long time. He has great knowledge and he did a great job for us in [Double-A] Mobile last year, the guys loved him. He'll do good things, but I wish him no luck this series." -- Manager Kirk Gibson, on former D-backs player and organizational coach Jay Bell, who is now the hitting coach for the Pirates
