Delayed reaction doesn't spoil D-backs' party
DENVER -- The scoreboard at Coors Field was slow. Anyone watching from the stands -- anyone watching from the Arizona dugout, for that matter -- who thought to pay attention in the closing inning and a half of the Diamondbacks' 4-2 win over the Rockies on Friday night knew only that Florida had taken a 7-4 lead over the Mets into the bottom of the ninth in New York.

Did I say this was the biggest game of my career? I should say, 'so far.' So far, it was the most important game I've pitched. I'm ready. It worked out perfect.
