Oh, it’s going to be fun to read the next entry to 38pitches.com
Steve, you should split Schilling’s numbers against the Yanks pre- and post-2004 the way you did Moose’s against the Sox. It’s basically the same deal. Prior to 2005, the Yankees couldn’t touch Schilling. Now, outside of a good game on occasion, they rock him. He no longer has that 96-mph fastball, and if his control isn’t perfect this team jumps all over him.
Even the Peanuts gang would have a hard time dressing up that Christmas tree….
Looks like the old Mo has returned.
Pete Abe wrote this over at the LoHud Yankee blog, I thought it was interesting because people seem to think that Derek isn’t a great leader.
Andy Pettitte (7 9 1 1 1 2) came up big and Derek Jeter once again showed why leadership isn’t about making statements to the media or holding team meetings. Leadership is getting three hits, scoring two runs and driving in two others in a game your team needs.
“Derek transcends leadership,” Hideki Matsui told me through his translator, Roger Kahlon. “I have played with many great players with the Yankees and Giants but nobody like Jeter. He runs, he hits, he fields and he plays well in the clutch. He is truly a great player.”
Or, as Pettitte said, “Derek is the greatest player I’ve ever played with.”
When things aren’t going well, even the Yankees captain can’t go unscathed. I still don’t get that logic.
GREAT PICTURE STEVE. Very clever!
