Kaat today, on MLB Network with Bob Costas:

I wasn't Secretariat. I was that No. 3 horse that could go to the post every week and get a check for you. I wasn't a dominant pitcher, or a perennial All-Star... I don't say that to be overly modest. I've just looked at my career pretty objectively. I lived in the Hall of Enjoyment for 25 seasons and you can't beat that.

I like that. The Hall of Enjoyment sounds like a great place, even though Jim Rice lived there until 2009, just yelling at reporters all day.
