"I was told around noon that I was going to start. So I was told early enough to get my mind set for the game. It's a little different when you come out of the pen than when you become a starter. It's nice to know when you're pitching, and when you get a surprise like today, you kind of have to go with the flow." - Brandon Backe in The Times-Picayune (July 8, 2004)
