• Riggleman On Chico:

Jim Riggleman: "I don't have the history with Matt [Chico] that some other people do in the organization. I guess a couple of years ago, you know, 31 starts he got here, which is pretty impressive, that's kinda what John Lannan's done the last couple years, so, it's not that easy to go out there and do that. He must not have missed any starts, pitched very well, really we just want to draw on that experience that he's had here in the big leagues (against) a very good right-handed hitting ballclub that he's going to face here, so it's going to be a tough challenge, but we felt like he was the guy most ready to do it and just like to see him go out there and keep us in the ballgame."
