Oh yeah, he's going to be in a lot of winning situations for us. He's going to be a big part of a lot of games.
He's the kind of guy who is always looking to improve. He pushes himself every day. His game, when it's on, it's a dominating style.
I feel like he's right on time. He's good to go.
He feels like he can't whip his arm like he's used to. We'll give him as much time as he needs.
The fact Rich has been sick (with food poisoning) the last few days and lost a little weight, well, we've got time. This won't hurt him.
He was outstanding. Even though he's still feeling a little bit under the weather from food poisoning.
He's shown he's ready to among the elite starting pitchers. His stuff is there. He is definitely going to be one of the leaders of this staff for the next few years.
I remember facing him on opening day in 1987. It was Oakland at the Minnesota Twins, the first time I got him out on a breaking ball down-and-in and next at bat he hit the same pitch for a home run. I was telling my kids that story yesterday.
I think Danny did well. His shoulder velocity is up, and I think his confidence is, too. He showed some health, and he showed some mental toughness in his games.
Mainly, he puts every pitcher in a comfort zone.
He came out healthy. We'll see how he is tomorrow. That will determine what we do next. He threw the baseball adequately for somebody who has been out a month. The good thing is he didn't have to walk off the mound with a strain.
Outstanding. Even though he's still feeling a little bit under the weather from the food poison, he threw the baseball very well. He'll be good to go on Friday.
With his mentality, he knows how to dominate. He takes his game to a different level every time he throws a baseball. He loves to compete, and he's learned his trade.
Joe has great instincts. It seems like he can adapt to whatever needs to be done.
He has the ability to adjust when things aren't going well command-wise. He's very good at recognizing what isn't working and going to something else.
