One of the commentators on TBS right now during the Yankees/Twins game, talking about Andy Pettitte:

Sometimes you can get guys out on just reputation alone.

Fact: three of Pettitte's eleven wins this year came without him ever throwing a single pitch. The opposing teams (Seattle, Cleveland, and Baltimore) saw his name on the scorecard, said "fuck that" and waited to take their chances against Burnett and Vazquez (who, coincidentally, both lost eight of their own starts based solely on reputation).

I need the Twins to win at least one game in this series if I'm gonna have any chance at winning the $10,000 "Bracket Challenge" on Hopefully the Yanks know about Mauer's rep and just give him second base every time he steps up to the plate.
