Underdog Jeopardy

Which major league pitcher recently said this?

"It’s a reputation.  Every time I come into a new ballpark, it’s, ‘We got _______, it’s going to be a four-hour game.’ I’ve been throwing under three hour games for two to three years now. But I’ve got that reputation."

Hints:  Today, August 4, he is 9-4, and he won his last start.  I can’t even imagine what Michael Kay would say about him, but last time he faced the Yankees, John Sterling and Suzyn Waldmann could give nothing but compliments about his deliberate pitches, and about how he knows exactly what he is going to pitch to whom. 

Check back tomorrow for the answer!

"He’s the best .233 hitter I’ve ever seen."

About whom did WCBS radio’s John Sterling say this?  He said it today, Sat. 7-29-06 during the Yankees-Devil Rays game.  The same player had completed 11/12 stolen bases at that point. 

Answer:  Miguel Cairo
