On that day, he said, 'I've pitched in front of 50,000 people before, but I've never been more nervous than I was that day I threw the bullpen.' He focused pretty good today. I've seen when there's been three times as many kids back there.”

 Brad Arnsberg - “There's not any spots open in that bullpen, but he's got to understand what an integral part of this program he is. I've said to other guys, 'You're ready for the big leagues, but the big leagues aren't ready for you.' Hopefully he finds himself in that spot.”
 Brad Arnsberg - “We've been talking about making an adjustment. We went to dinner a couple of nights and he wanted to work on it right then. He didn't want to wait. I was walking off the field and he decided he wanted to implement what we were talking about doing. Did it surprise me Maybe a little, because I didn't expect it this early. Am I pleased about it One hundred per cent.”
 Brad Arnsberg - “We didn't mix the split in, we're going to wait a couple of outings and let him air out before mixing in the split in outing three or four. We're guarding it with kid gloves right now.”

 Brad Arnsberg - “He threw threw the crap out of the ball in that pen. We have to wait to see how he is today, but right now I'd be very surprised if he doesn't make the start Saturday.”
 Brad Arnsberg - “To be able to say 'Oh yeah, we knew this year was going to come,' I don't think anybody would go on-line and say that. He just continues to gain steam and he just gets better and better almost every outing. It really has been a pleasure to watch.”
 Brad Arnsberg - “He's still a day or two, in my opinion right now, away from being able to get up on the mound.

 Brad Arnsberg - “I'm very happy with the way he looked. He used all his pitches, which we were excited about, and he had good command from the start. It's a positive sign that dispels any concerns we may have had.”
 Brad Arnsberg - “He's had little flashes where he looks like a big-league pitcher again. But he knows his command is not where he wants it to be.”
 Brad Arnsberg - “I'm anxious to go out there and see him compete again. To see him get back out there against a Major League club is going to be fun to see. I think he's excited. We're all excited.”
 Brad Arnsberg - “He's a veteran arm guy. We're not dealing with an arm like we are with A.J. We're dealing with a knee and, as long as this thing doesn't bite on him again, I think we're hopefully pretty clear.”
