soft hands.

do the duque!

"He is, first and foremost, a pitcher. And when he can't pitch, Hernandez stops being himself."

and a torre anecdote. i love anecdotes:

Torre knows how important Hernandez was in a previous ALCS Game 4 back in 1998, Hernandez's first season with the Yankees. They were behind 2-1 in the series to the Indians, but Hernandez pitched the Yankees into a series tie and they ended up winning it in six games.

"I remember going down to the coffee shop that morning and having a late breakfast with my wife," Torre said. "There was Duque moving dishes around and helping people with their breakfasts, and I thought, `Well, one thing about him, I know he's not afraid.' He was dynamite that day."
