Peterson to Burgos

Anthony De Rosa at Hotfoot, writes about Rick Peterson and his never ending quotes:

"We've made some minor adjustments that have allowed him to be himself," said Peterson. "I'd compare it to driving a car. You pull out of the parking lot, something doesn't feel right, and you realize you've got the parking brake on. You take it off and away you go.

"I think what we've done for him is take the parking brake off. It's a minor adjustment but it makes a huge impact. We want him to throw consistently at the bottom of the strike zone, because then, if hitters have to gear up for 94 (mph) down, how do you think they'll handle 98 up in the zone?"
