A pregame interview with Dioner Navarro
Rays catcher talks about his pitching staff
Dioner, a two part question. I was wondering what you thought of that play Longoria made the other day when he dove right and made the two bounce throw to first and what he's meant to your team this year?DIONER NAVARRO: He means a lot. I think we wouldn't be here without him. He's a great player. And we are really happy with the job that he have done for the whole team. And he does a lot for us defensively and offensively. You've been able to bounce back seems every situation this year. What is the mood of the team right now? DIONER NAVARRO: Well, we feel that we don't have to bounce back from nothing, you know. We lost a tough game yesterday. All we got to do is go after it today. We got to go out there and play hard and play the way we've been playing through the whole season and hopefully we can finish this thing today.
