"He's (Mark Ellis) been great, better than I honestly thought he was. I didn't do enough research. He grows on you all the time. He's been tremendous at second. But he's also a good hitter, he knows exactly what to do at the plate. He's given himself up six or seven times. For me, I love him." - Los Angeles Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly on MLB.com (Ken Gurnick, 05/03/2012, 'Dodgers' under-the-radar moves paying off', Source )
