I wasn't Secreteriat. 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.

Kaat won 283 games. His career ERA+ is 108. His comments seem reasonable to me.
