  • Mike Mussina, another superb Yankees pitcher, once said,

  • “I’ve never seen him get excited or upset about anything.

  • But being a pitcher, that’s a good way to be.”

  • Though he is quiet, he never loses a chance to make people around him laugh.

  • Sometimes he parrots the slang words he has learned from his teammates and uses them on his coaches or friends.

  • Most of the time, he has good comic timing.

  • His humor therefore has won him many friends on foreign soil.

  • With more and more calluses on his fingers, he seems to be pitching better and better.
