Joe Maddon's pre-game thoughts

On Dioner Navarro:
“Have you seen him?  He looks like some scene out of a horror flick.  He’s got the possessed eyes.  He said he see’s well and is better than yesterday.”

On Who Would be the Emergency Catcher:
“Who do you want it to be?  Sonnanstine, I think.  If [Zobrist] does that, we got to get him on the mound at some point.  [Percival] won’t be able to get back up.  After one sign that would be it.”

On Jason Bartlett:
“His numbers against lefties are extraordinary.  It’s hard to have better mechanics than he does right now at the plate.  Also, if you want to bring your kid to the ballgame and watch one baserunner, watch him, because he does everything right.  If I was to do an instructional video on baserunning, I’d use him.”

On Scott Kazmir, Wednesday’s starter:
“I know he is having mechanical issues.  It’s a fine line between working on your mechanics out there and just going out and pitching.  I believe he’s going to work this out, and when he does, it’s going to get really good.  I can’t give you a timeframe for when the switch will go on, but he has been doing a lot of work, and I have a lot of faith that it’s going to get ironed out.”
