It appears the loyal commenters beat me to the punch here but here goes anyway. Please note, I did NOT watch this "exhibition" game as I had some "Lost" to watch. Plus, a well known, knowlegable, NY sports personality told me it meant "Nothin."
Anyway, David done did it now. Mr. Non-Clutch clutched in a game winning hit in what amounts to a scrimmage. Did it against his teammates too. I just get the feeling that in the eyes of the Big Fella David would've been better off rejecting the offer to play for the USA and let Craig Biggio get that game winning knock. As it is, he "came up big" in a non "big spot". In a game that meant nothing. Against a pitcher lesser than Brad Lidge. I imagine this will be Mike's take.
Now, from all reports the game winning hit was only overshadowed by the apparent brutal defensive display by Captain America. Can anyone elaborate? Is it possible that the shoddy NYY defense will be even worse than anticipated?
