Quote to note

"We're digging ourselves a nice hole. Are we out of it? No. Anybody who's jumping off the bandwagon, see ya. Go. Bye. We're fine with that. We'll be fine. We'll play for the fans we do get. We do still have confidence in here, but it's a ship that we need to right and we need to start playing better baseball, otherwise we're going to keep going this way."
