"They're all going out and busting their [rears]," pitching coach Steve McCatty said. "They're performing at the level you expect them to perform at. They're pretty damn good. It's got nothing to do with me. I just let them go out there and I count pitches. I'm damn good at counting pitches. They've taken this big part of the year, and they've stepped it up."
"We always talk about working quick. We always try to do that," McCatty said. "If it makes the hitter feel like he has to get ready quicker, I think that's an advantage."
