Brandon's a little older now, so it's definitely good to see that he's still bouncing up and down on the mound, running to the dugout after finishing an inning, bouncing around like a pinball after foul grounders, etc.
I got a kick out of the game wrap on ESPN where Backe said he was extra-pumped because he was throwing to Biggio for two innings.
"I was pretty pumped up because of that," Backe said. "I was so excited, I finished my normal pregame routine in the bullpen eight minutes early. All I could think about after that was just trying to throw a strike on my first pitch."
Don't go a-changing, Brandon.
