For us, this is easy. We just keep going and wait to see who takes advantage of the opportunity. We have been very public with the fact that we have some talented, young arms in our system, and now they are going to have the chance to show what they can do.

Once that begins to happen, you begin a downward spiral that is hard to recover from. These guys have faced plenty of trials over the past two years and seem to just get better when their backs are pushed into a corner.
