Guthrie's outing

More on Jeremy
Guthrie’s
outing, which was overshadowed in Monday’s loss.

“He has movement;
movement on h is pitches, especially his fastball,” manager Dave Trembley
said.

“If you would go
back to last year, and you put it on the screen and you see his delivery from
last year and then you see what it has been the last two times he pitched in
spring training and the two starts he’s had here, you’ll see his arm angle I
think a little lower than it was.

He is just getting more
movement on his pitches and he’s not opening up. A lot of times last year he
was up too high and obviously the pitches were up and he really didn’t have a
lot on it. But he is back to where he was in 2008. He’s got movement, his
slider is a lot sharper. When he gets two strikes he can expand the strike zone
with it. Especially to right-handed hitters.”

Guthrie agreed that his
arm angle has caused him to have more movement, although he thought he was
better in that aspect during his first start on Wednesday.

“Overall I feel much more
confident throwing fastballs than I ever did at any point last year because of
a little bit more movement,” he said.

As for his lack of offensive
support?

 “I don’t even think about
it a whole bunch. Our hitters are phenomenal players, they are going to hit the
ball and this will all be forgotten sooner than later so for us pitchers we
know that all we can control is what we can do on the mound and we need to
continue to do that as best as we can. Because when we get going if we do our
part we are going to win a lot more games.”
