Kevin Hooper on Anthony: I have known Cap since his college days at WSU and feel very fortunate to have him in our rotation.  He put together a stellar season last year and will be another huge part of our success in 2014.  I'm hoping if he can go out and repeat what he did last year that it won't be long before he gets another opportunity in affiliated ball.
