"They can take whatever they want from it from it, but I just kind of got tired of people brushing him back. It's about time someone made a statement. I hate to be that guy, but someone had to take a stand and say we're tired of it. You can go after our best guy. Well, we'll make some noise, too, and that's what happened."

Those were Garza's comments after hitting Mark Teixeira with a pitch during yesterday's Rays-Yankees game. It was in response to Joba Chamberlain throwing over Evan Longoria's head in the previous inning.
