Trevor is the anchor of this (pitching) staff. It's good to have him back. I always thought over the winter --- I know there was a lot of back and forth ---- but deep down, I always felt he'd be back. He's been here such a long time, and he's such a mainstay for us. I'm glad that he's here.

He definitely had his moments of brilliance.

Hopefully, this year's the same thing. Get the first one out of the way. But it's not like you're trying to keep a streak going.

He's not going to let adversity slow him down. I see him pitching this year, definitely.

He said it felt like he could take a deep breath and didn't have chest congestion.

I don't know where they are coming from with that. Paul taught me a lot in the short time he was here. He had experience and a presence. All of us were taken aback.

It's going to take us a while to get in our groove, but we still have to figure out how to win with what we got. I think that will happen. I think this road trip is a good time to start that off.

He threw only 10 pitches. If he had been out there laboring through a long inning, backing up the bases, you hate to think what would have happened.

I don't think we need to start panicking this first week here. I think it's just a matter of, April is a tough month. You do what you can to win and right now we've got some guys who are a little tired from Spring Training still trying to get in shape.
