Believe it or not, that response from the Rockies right-hander wasn't even the best news Woody Roseland received on April 10.
Earlier that morning, a doctor had declared the 21-year-old stand-up comic's cancer treatment complete.
After several years of chemotherapy, surgeries and relapses, Roseland could finally put his illness behind him. And he started by tossing around a baseball with Guthrie at Coors Field.
"I couldn't really believe it," Roseland said. "Here's me and here's this Major League pitcher, trying to teach me how to throw a slider."
