We need three kinds of pitching: left handed, right handed, and relief.
You can always improve your bench and relief pitching.
The Yankees have better starting pitchers than Arizona. Arizona just has two... the Yanks have four.
Pitching just felt like the most natural thing in the world.
But, at the moment, when I step on the pitch, when I have the ball I know it's mine. It's just a feeling.
I often do crazy siren noises, or, like, a high-pitched dolphin, just to make sure that all my range is there. I make random noise and blurt out random sounds, to make sure I get rid of any bad nerves. I want to make sure to feel as confident as possible.

I say to you, you want a thrill, volunteer to be an umpire. I'd like you to go just work the bases some day. Just go do that. You're going to love it. Try the slow-pitch stuff. You'll love it. Ask my son - he tried it! He said, 'I've never seen so many idiots in all my life.'

That's how you win - pitching and defense.
My pitching philosophy is simple - keep the ball way from the bat.
