The umpire came over and said we couldn't play. ... [W]hy do I have to warm up my pitcher who's trying to make a team come in in a tie game against the Yankees and maybe help him make a team and instead he has to walk off the mound and take a shower? That's just not very courteous.Joe Girardi:
I used all our pitching, so I just said, "That's it. ... We don't have any more."Valentine:
They had plenty of pitching. Probably too long of a [bus] ride [back to Tampa].Girardi listed 12 pitchers on his travel roster and had used only five in the game (a sixth had thrown a side session). The Daily News pointed out that "lefty Mike O'Connor and five additional minor-leaguers were with the team — including Pat Venditte, who throws from both sides."
