Pedroia was pretty complimentary in general about the direction the Orioles are going, specifically on the mound. "I've never gotten a chance to face Matusz, but everyone is talking about him. But we have faced David Hernandez, Berken, Bergesen, Tillman. They all have great stuff," he said. "I think it's a great thing what they're doing. They're letting them pitch. All of them, you can tell, have the makeup and the presence that they want to get better and they're willing to work. It's good to see. Well, it's not good for us to see, but they're doing a good job.
