Quote to note

"I'm willing to do whatever it takes. I want to win baseball games. That's the whole goal. I don't care what it has to take -- I want to win. With the strides that we took last year, we're in a great spot. We're moving forward in a fast direction. It's going to be fun and exciting. It's a good time to be a Cleveland Indians fan." -- left fielder Michael Brantley, who signed a four-year extension on Thursday
