Arnsberg is all up in Wandy's house

Interesting little note in Levine's blog about how quickly pitchers warmed up to Brad Arnsberg.

Arnsberg:
"For the most part, most of them let me in somewhat quick. Even with Wandy (Rodriguez) last year, I know it had been tough on Wandy having gone through a couple different pitching coaches in his last three or four years. It took me awhile to get into his house, but when he let me in and realized that I might be a little bit smarter than I look, we became great friends."

Does that explain his - and others' - slow start? Bud Norris seems to think it's a possibility:
"Making adjustments with a brand-new coaching staff was hard for everybody last year," Norris said. "It might take a half a season. That's pretty much what it did for us."
