List of Gary Carter quotes.

That was Jeff's escape. But without Shane . . .


I?m not happy we lost but the effort was there, ... That?s the kind of intensity we?re looking for.


When somebody tells you that something could have been done, that maybe a phone call to 911 could have saved him, that's when you start to beat yourself up. I think that's when the depression set in more than anything.
