Quote of the Day
“All those guys and everybody could do everything they’re supposed to, but if the bullpen is not there it all turns to garbage. And if the bullpen does its job, and we’ve got a lot of pitchers who we believe can throw well, I think we’re going to be in really great shape this year.’’
