Here are a few New Year's resolutions from those around baseball.
"Usually I don't make resolutions, but with the World Championship this year might be different. Like the rest of the team, the organization and D-Backs fans everywhere, I guess I'll resolve to go out and do it again. That season was the most fun I've ever had in baseball. We'll do whatever it takes to get there again."
-- Bob Brenly, Diamondbacks manager
"Get to the World Series."
-- Ben Davis, Mariners catcher
"I'd like to drop a few pounds and come into camp ready to get the team prepared for a winning season. I guess, in a nutshell, I just want to come in and try and have a more open mind in dealing with people and situations, not just as a manager, but as a person."
-- Joe Kerrigan, Red Sox manager
"To win 90 or more games!"
-- Paul Godfrey, Blue Jays president and CEO
"Not to make any New Year's resolutions because I can't keep them."
-- Al Leiter, Mets pitcher
