Not sure, it just stands out to me because it's been mentioned so often that it's been down this spring. I just assumed that they were stating that as a comparison to where it was last year.

I just remember this guys saying something like "Get used to his blazing 88-89 mph fastball", something like that.

Moyer might be the power pitcher if it gets any worse

Pompous Hayes

Smoltz:
"I wouldn't have gone to the bullpen for anything other than the closer's role. I would have said, 'I'm sorry.' That's just me."

"This one is surprising to me. To me, he's a top-notch starter. It'll be interesting to see how he does in his role - whatever role it is. He's not going back to a closer's role. It's a lot different when you don't have a structured role."


Wanger:
"I'd like to have him over here. He's got the stuff to be in the bullpen. It's all in how you use him. If you wear him out ... he's not going to be used to the up and downs."

[On Lieber possibly being a closer:] "Could be. That goes back to your makeup. Some guys can go in there and do it on an interim basis. Some guys can't."


Lieber:
"I'm frustrated. Pissed. At his performance? **** yeah."

Can't argue with Lieber, I feel the same way about his performance in the bullpen so far.

Seriously, we have to move him soon or move him into the rotation. Otherwise, we just run his value down even more.

You missed some of the quotes, which made it confusing to me.

"I'm frustrated. [Peeved]," Lieber said. At his performance? "[Shucks], yeah."
"My hip is #$!&@ up. I'm going to Africa for two weeks."
