I like his makeup. I think his stuff is going to be big for one or two innings in the bullpen. To me, Franklin's the guy with the rubber arm. He's the guy who can bounce back. He was very concerned with his role. He didn't want to be mopping up games.
Rodriguez has a big arm, and he had great command and control [against the Pirates]. He threw strikes, and his breaking ball was a lot better. He has the potential to do that during the season if he keeps his command together.
Chase and Jimmy are the type of players who work so hard to improve and get better on the field. They strive for that. They want to get better all the time. They're fine up-and-coming players who are only going to keep getting better.
Our team starts with Billy. When you're building a pitching staff, you start with a closer and work forward. He's definitely one of the top two or three closers in baseball. I'm definitely going to keep up with his negotiating and everything. I'll do whatever I can to help sign him.
Brett is so full of energy, and we've talked about how to handle that energy. He did a great job last season. He kept us in almost every ballgame with a chance to win. That's what you want out of your starters. I think he's going to have a great year. He's focused in on what he needs to do.
That doesn't worry me. Setting up is a lot like closing. I've seen Gordon pitch a lot. I think he's still got good stuff, the same stuff as two years ago when I saw him. I think he's going to do the job for us.
If it helps baseball out, I'm all for it. But timing-wise, when it's going to happen, I feel like it might be better after the World Series, anywhere from November to the first of December. I worry about my pitching, and I'm sure other guys worry.
