Who is Casey Janssen to Hit Kevin Youkilis? Sincerely, Pedro Martinez
J.D. Who?

"He's using his sinker and not trying to overpower guys as much. He's using his curveball and throwing that for strikes, using his change-up and throwing that for strikes. His off-speed stuff is the key to his success. A lot of power pitchers want to throw it by guys. He's finally understanding that off-speed is the key to being a power pitcher." -- 5.8.07, Kevin The Hit Man Youkilis on the undefeated Josh Beckett
