In '05, '06, '07 and '08, I wasn't throwing any changeups at all. Maybe two or three per game. In '09, I started playing with the grip, started throwing it in the bullpen and playing catch. It came out really good.

I can't say anything I don't love about Seattle.
Every year, you have to keep adjusting. I'm 28; I'm not 19 anymore. You have to work harder now.
I'm going to say this - to the people in Seattle, to all the people in Seattle that trust me, that believe in me - I'm going to say this: I'm not going to disappoint anybody.
I don't want to be just an average guy. I want to do whatever possible to win a lot of games. I'm a competitor.
When you work somewhere and you feel comfortable, you don't want to leave. You want to stay there forever.
