MLB.com: You’ve said often this spring that you’re very comfortable with the state of the bullpen. Do you feel like that was the biggest improvement this team made going forward?
Torre: Leaving here, I think we’ve improved it, because we added [Luis] Vizcaino. To me, that was a huge get for us. We really wore [Ron] Villone down last year, we wore [Scott] Proctor down last year. Vizcaino is durable to the point where, not that we’re going to use him multiple innings, but he’s probably going to pitch multiple days and I think that’s important.
[Kyle] Farnsworth, after the first year, figures to be more comfortable here. Proctor, after last year, he came as an extra pitcher at the end of Spring Training and turned into somebody very necessary. So I’d like to believe that our strength was there.
But again, the strength of your bullpen only depends on how well your starters do. Last year, your fourth and fifth starters, we didn’t get a great deal of length out of them, so we really had to go to the bullpen more times than we wanted to.
We really wore [Ron] Villone down last year, we wore [Scott] Proctor down last year.
Did he really say “we”? “We” who? “We” as in me, myself, and I?
