I must say that I was pretty darn impressed with Mr. Saturday Night's lead off at-bat for the Yankees this afternoon. He fouled off a nice pitch and worked the count to 3-1 before getting two nasty cut fastballs from the Pirates' Paul Maholm.
Here's the video if you don't mind crappy audio and picture quality (I'll replace later)....
Very Corey Patterson-like. Get the count to 3-1 and swing for the fences as a lead off hitter. Prepare for ESPN to cut into the Marquette-Notre Dame game about 20 times to show you this.
