Perfect pitch not perfect enough

Here’s what Gil Meche told the Kansas City Star about A-Rod’s home last night:

“If I could have walked up there and placed the ball where I wanted to throw it in that situation. A cutter on a 3-2 count, I wouldn’t have thrown it any other place.

I mean it was down. It was on the corner. He just went down there and got it. He’s probably the only guy in this league who could hit a ball that hard in that location. There’s nothing else you can do but tip your cap in that situation.”

Several Yankees said the same thing, marveling at how A-Rod could hit that pitch the other way.

“I’m glad he’s on our team,” Mike Mussina said. “I wouldn’t want to face him right now.”
