It drives me crazy when the Pirates hit home runs off "the best that money can buy," i.e., guys like Kevin Brown and Carl Pavano. I have learned that money buys and means everything in baseball. So I know that Brown and Pavano must have been having a little fun. I bet if we study the tape we'll see a big wink right before the "pitch" was lobbed in there. Or maybe the Yankees catcher standing up and whispering in Ty's ear.
. . . hey, I was right. There's Pavano laughing his ass off at the good joke. I wish they wouldn't toy with us like that.
