“It’s hard to measure defense. Defense can be looked at so many different ways–whether you take away runs or you get to a bunch more balls or maybe it’s something else.” -RZ

“I try to get every single ball that comes my way. I think in the past that’s kind of hurt me a little bit–I get to many balls and instead of not throwing the ball I try to make the play. This year I learned when it’s smart to make the play and when it’s not. I think if you try to make every single play, it hurts the team more than it helps it.” -RZ

“I’ve only been playing third base for four years in the Big Leagues and two-and-a-half or three years in college, so it’s not a new position to me anymore but I think there are things to learn once you slide over there from shortstop. I played shortstop my whole life and you just fine tune things and make yourself better at each individual part of it.” -RZ

“I remember the last time I sat around and waited to see if I won something, I came up short to Hanley [Ramirez] in the Rookie of the Year. So, I’ve been just doing what I usually do and to hear this news is very exciting for me and my family.” -RZ
