Reliever Brad Halsey established in his 2004 tour
with the Yankees that he could be called on to respond to another team's overly aggressive pitching in a timely fashion. It's been said many Yankee pitchers have allowed opponents at the plate to get 'too comfortable' so Suzyn and John expressed approval that AJ Burnett reciprocated moving a Rays' player off the plate in tonight's game. The Rays' tv guys observed it was clearly a 'returning the favor' situation for something Garza had done earlier. Halsey looked deceptively cherubic.
