So how did that first bullpen session go, you might wonder. Here's what Gus Molina had to say:
"He's a machine.... Everything was down in the zone, in and out."
The dude just isn't human. Steps on the mound for the first time and hits his spots. It's almost a good thing that Mo is hanging them up after this season, because I'm running out of things to say about the guy. My buddy Gary read another report this morning that said Mike Harkey stepped into the batter's box a few times without a bat to give Mo some perspective. I think Gary summed it up best with the message he posted on my Facebook wall this morning, "You might as well just leave the bat in the dugout when you step up to face the G.O.A.T."
(I still don't remember where I first saw this, but courtesy of whoever was smart enough to put it together.)
