“I have something to prove to myself and the city of Chicago, and that’s about it. I know what I’m capable of doing, and the Cubs know what I’m capable of doing. There’s a big upside.” ~ Jason Marquis

“He was going to get $20 million to $21 million from three or four different teams. That was definite.” ~ Jim Hendry, on signing Marquis.

“It’s not about saving money; it’s about feeling comfortable with what we have. The problem is what’s going on next door, [with the Cubs] throwing money around the way they have.” ~ White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen on the Brandon McCarthy deal.
