Captain Cool Responds

“Why would I care?...I don't have to do it in his lineup . . . I'm not thinking about the MVP right now. We're thinking about winning the division. No one here is focused on individual awards." Derek Jeter on Ortiz's MVP comments.

If you ever wanted to know the difference between the Yankees and well, everybody else, Jeter's response to this foolishness encapsulated it.

Ortiz's whining proves that the Sox have truly raised the white flag on this season. Being the team player he is, I doubt he would be complaining about the MVP race if they still had a chance to make the playoffs.

Ortiz has some legitimate beefs with the way the MVP vote is judged. But do you think he's going to change any minds by whining about it?

On the contrary, now the Nation, being the cannibals they are, have turned on their beloved Papi for his whining. Noone does angst like the losers in Red Sux Nation.

Jeter scored big, by stating the obvious and leaving it at that. Whether or not he wins the MVP, he's been the most valuable Yankee. And that's all that matters.

Johnson got a gift last night and he knows it.

But hey, Steve Traschel has been winning like this all year so I have no problem if Johnson gets a couple of wins like that.

It was to see them come back in a game where the stakes were almost non-existent. It means that homefield is on the forefront of their minds. Hopefully it stays there.

Nice to see A-Rod get a dinger against a brand name reliever in the ninth. I'm glad that he decided to sit out when he was sick instead of trying to play sick.

Godzilla returns tonight. Giambi plays first. Could get ugly.
