(How's the condition of Rudy Carpenter?)
"He couldn't throw. His thumb swelled up and bothers him a little bit. He can take snaps and do all that other stuff, but he couldn't throw today. We'll see how he is tomorrow. It's a day by day thing."
(What did you think of Danny Sullivan's performance in practice?)
"Sully is a good player. He understands what's going on. You have to have a guy like him. As I said yesterday, I have a great deal of confidence in him. If he has to play he plays. That's the nature of the game."
(How's the condition of Jeremy Payton?)
"Jeremy is very doubtful for Saturday with the ankle sprain."
(Will it be a game time decision on whether Carpenter will play or not )
"Do I think it is? No. He'll play. I'll be shocked if he didn't play. I'd be shocked if he didn't come out throwing by Thursday, but I'm not a doctor either. Knowing him…is he gonna miss this game? Are you kidding me? No way…just like I won't miss it. They would be better off with me missing it than him."
(How's the team adjusting to the magnitude of this game>)
"I don't know that it has fazed them one bit. We practiced the same, we do the same things everyday…from what I see it's business as usual and that's what it's all about. We'll prepare and play as well as we can up there. I don't think it makes any difference if we play on Fox (Sports) Arizona or ESPN. It doesn't make any difference. We didn't expect the hype obviously going into the season. It happens to be here because we've been successful."
