Comments from Buccos and fans right after the NLDS game 5

Andrew McCutchen “We can’t let this one game define our year, because we had an amazing year, a year to remember, a year that is going to go down forever as the one that turned around the franchise.” “So as I shared with the men in the locker room, their futures individually and collectively are in good hands. All they’ve got to do is look at the end of their arms, because that’s where their hands are. They’ve worked their backsides off this year, and I’m proud of each and every one of them” “This was one of our stepping-stones, and we have to take it in a positive manner. If you haven’t failed, you haven’t lived.”

Neal Huntington “It ended too soon, but yes, we earned the right to feel this pain.”

Clint Hurdle “Don’t forget this feeling. Come back next year and build on it.”
