Highly Irritating Quote of the Day

"I'd like to give you my glove and you go out there and try to pitch to that lineup. I'm thanking God we're in the Central and not the East. That's unbelievable... . Un-be-lievable.", Minnesota Twins pitcher Rick Reed, following the Yankees 15-1 thrashing of the Twinkies, a game in which he gave up 10 earned runs in 4 2/3 innings.

Continuing the theme developed below about New York's utter and complete intimidation of the Twins, Reed as much as admits that he's afraid of the Bombers. I presume that he'll show the same yellow-bellied cowardice in the face of a Red Sox lineup that is arguably as strong as that of the Yankees. I won't hold my breath waiting for it, though.
