I'm open to anything. Whatever they think is best for me is probably going to be best for me. They know what they're doing. Everybody has been throwing well. It's going to be going down to the last couple of games, I guess.
As much as you would like to say it doesn't get in your head, it probably does. It's a little bit of trying to place the ball instead of throwing through the catcher.
This is the best I felt this year, by far. I thought I controlled all my pitches the best I have all year, counting spring training.
A four-pitch walk with two outs in the first inning. That's the only problem there was. My arm feels better now than it did at any point last year.
He was of the wrong tribe even though he could have been a great associate. He didn't even have a day to prove himself.
It's never bothered me. It's never affected my running. It's never affected how late I can go into the game. Then again, I'm still 22. So in 10 years it probably would affect my running and throwing, so I'd just like to knock it out now.
I've wanted to pitch here since I was 5 years old. I have people calling all the time.
When they called me in, they told me to first listen to everything they had to say.
We all think we can win. We think the experience factor is very overrated. Just because you're not a proven big-league player doesn't mean you can't play the game. We have to go out and play our best every day to win, we know that.
They told the new hire that even though he might have a contract, his career there was over.
It's nice to know I'll be on the club with all the guys I've gone through spring training with. Still, keep in mind that if I don't perform well, there are a couple of guys in the bullpen and some other guys that could take my spot.
It just shows for me to be successful I have to get ahead on the count. A lot of the struggles I had in this game were from being behind on the count and having to throw the ball down the middle.
