Bud Norris' train keeps a rollin'

Article in the Austin American-Statesman on 2010 SP4 Bud Norris. Some nuggets:

"I'm throwing the ball real well over the course of the year, and my health has held up. I'm going to keep letting the train keep going and throw every five days. You go out there with the mind-set that your team is going to give you the best effort to win. I go out there every time just worrying about my job, and I know my guys are going out there and trying their hardest. Sometimes you get on the short end of the stick. But let's not worry about one game; let's worry about the course of the year and how the team ends up."

While Norris has been impressive this season, there is still room for improvement. Bombard said his young pitcher needs to work on controlling his fastball. Norris said he needs to improve on keeping base runners in check. This season, Norris has added a changeup to go with his mid-90 mph fastball and his slider.

I'm worried about the Round Rock team now and pitching here and giving them the best opportunity to win. When the time is right, they'll know when I'm ready."
