AD: There are some good things in there. There are some bad things. If I can just eliminate a few of those bad things, I'll be happy.
Are strikeouts a concern?
AD: Depends on when. First inning, two outs, nobody on, I'm not going to lie to you, I'm trying to get in the seats. If I strike out, O.K., whatever. If there are runners in scoring position and you strike out, that's bad.
Would you rather face Justin Verlander or R.A. Dickey?
AD: I would go Dickey.
AD: Because Verlander is in my division, and I don't want to make him mad.
Who's the pitcher you've faced where you said, That's just not fair.
AD: Randy Johnson, when he was good.
What's it like to face Johnson as a lefty?
