But no, it was everything I thought it would be and more, and I was real proud of our people and our fans who showed up. A lot of people made a decision, and in today's economy and the whole nine yards, it wasn't free, and we're appreciative. They made it worthwhile and they were part of us being in that ballgame last night. They really were. Our guys fed off of it.
The reason that you guys are here, a big reason is the bullpen and Darren O'Day in particular. How valuable has he been to the success of the pen and the success of the team this year?
SHOWALTER: Darren, with one exception, a couple hiccups right after the All-Star break which was my fault for doing that skit or whatever they call it, that prank on him, I think that's why he did, he's been rock solid from day one. You know, Darren just gives himself a chance to have success. He understands -- the one thing he's done really well this year is attack left-handed hitters. He's learned how to defend himself against left¿handed hitters. That's unusual with a guy with his arm angle. Rick made an adjustment with him after the break that he had changed a little something there, and also they talked about the things he could do to be a little better against left-handed hitters.
He's been so versatile for us. Usually a guy like him is not that versatile. You don't like seeing him face multiple hitters. But you've got a left¿handed starter a certain night, you know you're going to see more right-handed hitters out of the pen initially.
