He's a professional. He takes the ball. He's not always healthy when he goes out there, but he doesn't complain about it. He just gives you the best he can possibly give you. It was the same way last year, even though we were really trying to protect him with that knee, he still wanted to throw as many innings as he possibly could.
What you have to do is get me to believe more in you by your performances. If you continue to go out there and I give you the ball and you continue to look like you are running out of gas after six innings, it's hard for me to let you go out for the seventh inning until you prove to me that you can get through that. That's what it's all about.
Usually in a game like that you hope for one good shot against a guy like that and we got it. With the bases loaded and nobody out you expect to get something out of it. We couldn't have asked for anything better with our heart of the order coming up. We had the people we wanted coming to the plate.
Usually in a game like this you hope for one good shot at a pitcher like Pedro. It wasn't whether they had good at-bats, they just weren't productive even if they hit the ball hard. We had the people you wanted at the plate in the order you wanted and expected to be productive, but we didn't get it.
