About Casey Fossum

When I did get the call to start, it took about three games for me to build my innings up. Now, I can prepare myself to start, condition myself properly, space my throwing out, build up from the beginning this year and be ready to start. I think it's going to help me in the long run.

I was putting the ball in play and the defense made a lot of big plays behind me. It gives you a lot of confidence when you can let them hit the ball and you know they can make the play.

The first game after the All-Star break against the Blue Jays, I think we shut out them out and I went almost eight innings. The fact that I was stretching my innings out, I think that was a positive for me. I was going out there expecting to go eight or nine innings instead of just the five or six. I had the mentality of going eight or nine last year.

Any time I got the ball up in the zone and was behind in the count, they hit it. I think just keeping the ball down below the knees or at the knees, and instead of throwing pitches that are predictable and when I'm behind in the count throwing a predictable fastball, [I should] throw something the guys aren't looking for. I think a lot of it for me now is I'm able to execute a lot of my pitches. It's just a matter of figuring out what they're looking for. Over time, since I've seen the hitters more, I've gotten better about doing that.

I mean the first one, obviously, I just flat out hit him. But the next two, I like throwing inside and I'm not going to back off. I can assure you I wasn't doing it on purpose. But that's the type of player he is.

I distinctly remember Jay Gibbons hit the grand slam off me at Baltimore. I think I ended up giving up nine runs in that game. It was just a nightmare game for me. That was a good example of the snowball effect. If things go bad in the first inning, I don't want it to snowball it even more.

Welcome to the neighborhood, huh? It's a gated community. It's supposed to be safe. I'm not sure if we're even going to stay there now. We moved in at 8 o'clock (Thursday) night, and I woke up at 7 and saw this. The police said it happened between 4 and 5. Unbelievable.

You gotta get ahead and stay ahead. But if they do start fouling stuff off, change the speed. For me, that's when I put my slow one in there, something to get them off what they've been doing.

It's kind of hard to leave guys stranded at third base. I was trying to get outs. If he scored, so what? Luckily things worked out fine that inning.
