“[He's] throwing the ball well, probably throwing the ball as well now as he did last spring training. The bottom line is he’s feeling better. He used the word normal as a description. And he is, in every sense of the word, at least where everybody else is, and probably higher than a lot of people to tell you the truth. I’m mean he knows how to pitch, he has movement, he has location. And now it’s a matter of building up strength and innings and pitches, just like everybody else. So it’s a great spot we’re in, dot dot dot, there’s more to go and I’m very optimistic that it could happen”

Poor girl. So young, so innocent. May she rest in peace.
