Sounds good, right? Well, Gordon wasnt all that impressed.
Its still early, Gordon said after the D-backs game. We still have a lot of time to work. Its feeling a little bit better, but not where I want it to be.
Just because you get results, it doesnt mean its maybe where you want to be. I still have some stuff to work on.
Well, manager Ned Yost was impressed.
Yeah, hes swinging the bat pretty good for me, Yost said.
