5. Brad Ausmus on Opening Day: "The energy for Opening Day, for me it's a kin to the Super Bowl. It's kind of an unofficial holiday for Michigan and Detroit. It's a lot of fun to be a part of it."
4. Torii Hunter Not Happy With Joe West: "I hate he did that. I have no idea why he didn't check. He just walked off. Obviously he knew he was wrong. If I'm going to get fined for saying this... Joe West was wrong."
3. David Price On Opening Day Win: "It's always great to win that first one, especially with the day off tomorrow. You don't want to have 30 hours to think about the loss. Just win game one. To come out and win the way we did today, it was solid defense, that was the definition of a team win."
2. Dave Dombrowski on Joe Nathan Injury: "We're going to place Joe Nathan on the 15 day disabled list, retroactive to Monday, with a right elbow flexor strain. We're going to recall for tomorrow's game, the contract of left-handed reliever Blaine Hardy from Toledo."
1. Mike Babcock Likes Jimmy Howard's Play: "Tonight he had to make some saves in the game to win, and he did. That gives you confidence and puffs you up again."
