McTaggart's notes

McTaggart's Notes column has a few things of note.

-Bud Norris is expected to pitch on Sunday, after taking that line drive off the elbow.

"It started to swell up, but I wanted to keep pitching and try to help my team. [Mills] gave me an opportunity, and he said, 'Are you OK?' And I said, 'I'm OK.' In retrospect, I'm glad I stayed out there and battled the best I could."

-Sean Berry is worried. About the offense. About his job.

"Every day is brand new, and I always put a lot of pressure on myself to keep my focus and make sure I'm not missing anything," he said. You try to cover everything. There's no way you point to one thing. It's a tough thing to do, to be a professional hitter at this level. It's difficult, and you're going to go through these things, I don't care how good they are. Hopefully they don't last every long. This one has lasted longer than we hoped but they'll get better."
