I'm proud that he's a Red and I hope to meet him at Redsfest so I can thank him for all the good things he brought to the team this year.
I'm glad he knows it but that's just half the battle. Easier said than done.
Make no mistake I think Mat is probably our best pitcher and will step up 95% of the season as who he is right now. But he needs that extra 5 percent to keep his cool in critical situations.
