The bullpen is worlds better than last year. We would have won at least 15 more games last year if we had had the bullpen of 2002/2003. The starting pitching is slightly better. I have to admit having Ortiz and Paul Wilson is much better than Haynes and Paul Wilson. I think DanO has done a B- right now with an A coming if he gets a good number 2 pitcher (Number 1 for us).

I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
