"Everybody wants to hit home runs...It's all about the long ball. Chicks dig the long ball. Maybe that's why I don't have any." Tony Womack
Every saber-friendly Yankee fan's favorite, Tony Womack has played well of late, impressing Joe Torre with his wheels of steal. So long as dude is batting ninth, there won't be too much bitching about him round these parts.
Meanwhile, Kevin Brown, whose fourth child war born on Tuesday, got served by the Pirates in an exhibition game yesterday. Needless to say, Brown wasn't exactly pleased with his performance. The Post reports:
"He's not happy when he gives up runs," said Mel Stottlemyre. "He didn't think he had anything. I thought he threw good.
"We got him to 78 pitches, right on target. He felt good (physically) afterwards, but he was disgusted."
