We were just talking about the offseason and, ironically enough, going fishing and stuff like that. -- Houston pitcher Lance McCullers.---Its so horribly sad on so many different levels that therell be no more of that, no more of him, therell be no more of that emotion on the mound, that skill set, that human being, that young man with such a gift, such a great smile. -- Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle.---The baseball family has suffered a loss. Its recognizable in the clubhouse today, very recognizable. Its a sad day. The show goes on for us, but its a sad day.

I just remember watching that and thought it was pretty cool. -- Cleveland manager Terry Francona.---When the first pitch left his hand, the first thought is, `Oh, wow, this is something special. ...

Fernandez was scheduled to start Monday night at home vs. the Mets.---He had Hall of Fame-level talent. It felt like Jose could last a long time, be a part of that for a long time, be the face of the Marlins a long time. -- Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell.---When I think about Josie, its going to be thinking about a little kid. ... I see such a little boy in him ... the way he played. ... Kids play Little League, thats the joy Jose played with. -- Miami manager Don Mattingly.
