OAKLAND, CA - MAY 13: Derek Norris #36 of the Oakland Athletics is congratulated by teammates after Norris scored on an RBI single from John Jaso #5 (not pictured) against the Texas Rangers in the second inning at O.co Coliseum on May 13, 2013 in Oakland, California.
Personally I just stick to a routine ... I don't like hearing what a guy tries to do in certain situations. I just want to know what pitches he throws. I don't want to be surprised.
He's a different pitcher now ... It looks like he's using four different pitches, and before all you used to see was 98 coming at you and trying to throw as hard as he can. He's getting a little more refined with being a starter.More quotes »
