Bagwell, on Norris

Jeff Bagwell was asked what he thought about Bud Norris, and he said...

"Bud has great stuff. He's got a personality that maybe his teammates don't like (laughs), but I love. Bud is off the wall, and he's not arrogant, but he believes in his ability. And he has tons of ability. He has a chance to be in our organization and pitch and be upward of one-two in our rotation for years to come. I'm excited about Bud. I truly love him. I think he's going to do great, I really do. I remember back in 2001, we had Roy (Oswalt), Wade (Miller), Carlos Hernandez and (Tim) Redding. I remember sitting there talking to Bidge and saying, 'We have a chance to be good for a while.' These are the young kids that have to come up. In today's game, it's very hard to go out and pay for pitching, because pitching costs so much money. If we develop our own guys, we'll have time to keep them in our own nest."
