Quote to note

"It's great when you can run guys out there and they can do the things they've done. At the same time, it's frustrating on my side knowing that, if I was where I needed to be during those games, I would be out there at those points, too, helping save some of those guys from getting out there too many times."
-- Axford, on other relievers handling the ninth inning
